This is the first opportunity I have had at a Snowy Egret. At a distance as usual.

Hi VP, Nice shots.

I would make a suggestion, that when shooting these guys you have to allow one full stop over what your meter is telling you. If you're not shooting manual, then set the exposure compensation to give you this extra stop. Doesn't hurt to shoot in RAW either. These guys just blow the sensor if you go by the meter.

Beautiful shots VP! I really like the first as it's unique with the reflection and motion.

Thanks guysfor the comments and taking a look.

Don..... it looks kind of shallow there (from the pic), but it does look likewalking on water.

Dave....thanks for the suggestion on shooting those whites. I need to work on them some more for sure. I did shoot this inRAW but i'm most likely the culprit here onthe result. I was excited to see that Snowy and didn't check anything:-)

Kent...wish I had been closer (and with different lens) this guy was making plenty of moves chasing his breakfast.
