Default Snowy's In Flight

When I was in Green Cay Wetlands on Tuesday the water level was the lowest I have seen there. They control the water level there so it should be intentional. There was the benefit of there being more wading birds then I have seen there in a long time, including the Roseate Spoonbils I posted, and these Snowy Egrets.

Nice - the aerodynamic effects of near-stall are even more evident in the first three than in the Spoonbill picture.

Just beautiful, Ed!
I really like the last one with the reflection.

Wonderful detail, great lines and movement, and beautiful backgrounds as well. Agree with GW - the reflection photo is stunning! But my favorite is #2 - toes still in the water, and such lovely color in the water...

Awesome series! I'm amazed at how well your very white birds came out - I never have much luck with them. The feather detail is just outstanding!

I was using -1.3 exposure compensation trying to avoid blowing out the highlights. Can not recover any detail when over exposed.
