Went out looking for bugs and flowers to shoot today, no luck so strapped on the trusty Tamron 70-300 that has served me so well and got this snowy egret in breeding plumage.

This is a hit! Looks very sharp and well defined, why so small? Could we see it 800 pixels wide?

Just a little sharpening and desaturation of the fringing. 60 sec effort, hope you don't mind. I think the picture deserves some pp.

Nice shot. Despite being only a few hours apart, I have never seen a snowy egret with the extra plumage in real life. I think ours are lazy and shiftless or else the females just have low standards. :-)

Superb - the detail is amazing.

It is so easy to blow the exposure with white subjects.

Took me ages to get a hafway decent white bird with detail....
