Default Snowy Egret standing in a sunbeam

E-3 and 50-200, f4.5; ISO 800.

Yeah, I know the exposure on the egret is uneven, but I kinda like this shot. I like the play of sunlight and deep shadows. He was in the shadows and then just walked into the shaft of sunlight and just stood there.

Waited for your moment. Nicely done.

A livelier title might have been. Light beam saves Egret from ninja turtles.

Oh well never mind.

Very well done Steven. The lighting is pretty effective here.

But I've a question; what are all those turtles doing?

Hi Zig: As usual, the turtles were doing their normal lazy thing of just lying around.
