Default Snowy Egrets

Again at Green Cay Wetlands. This snowy was fishing for minnows that made the water look like it was raining.

You did a lot better than me ith a 300mm The last one is stunning indeed.
In Toronto we just do not have snowy egret at all. But I had a chance while touring the Far East. They ( the Far East version) are a lot smaller than Great Blue Huron. But they are gracious too

You take such beautiful Snowy Egret shots.

I love #3 best but wonder if this is a crop ? If not then that reflection is superb and if the full reflection was in the shot it would be stunning.

Fabulous Ed. You have Egrets down to a science. These are wonderful shots with great detail in them. They are beautifully framed as well.

Excellent pictures! It is so difficult to get the exposure right
when you have a brightly lit white egret against a dark
background. Great job!

Incredible shots! I can't get that close to the few egrets I see so I always turn green with envy when I see your perfect shots.

Knock-out shots, Ed-

There is plenty of WoW factor in that series.
