Default Great Egret Take-off

Shot at the San Diego Wild Animal PArk while I was training a client on Saturday... this is so far the only shot I've had time to process of my own (we were processing his shots). I'll get to the rest of the 500+ shots I took as soon as I can. I think you'll like some of these...
300mm @ f/5.6

Default The detail

Ron,

Superb, awesome. Love the detail and the spread of the wings, very elegant. Spot on exposure doesn't hurt either
:P

Primo shot, Ron. Love the water coming off his feet as well as the way his wing fans out!

Default Nice one, Ron!

I'll bet that duck is thinking "if this guy doesn't clear the water pretty soon, I'll have to live up to my namesake :-( "

Great catch at "the moment." Were you using the 5 fps?

Best regards,

Lin

Default Nice Shot

Sounds like you have been busy the last couple days. Thanks for always taking the time to post and comment on photos, I usually learn something and my wife just loves all your crane/egret shots. Speaking of learning if you remember the post you had in the last forums, under your section that you moderated, you posted a 10 step for better shots. It was like basics on one page. If you still have it could you repost it?

Thanks

Default Awesome shot!

I love the splash of water at the feet of the egret. The wing span and feather detail is beautiful.

Thank-you for sharing!
