All: D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 400, 1/800, f8, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer)

Saturday morning I pull into the parking lot at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area in Long Island, NY and the first thing I see is this egret standing there a few feet from the edge of the lot. There is a photographer hiding behind a tree and taking photos of it. I move in behind him and take a few photos before seeking a location with a better background. Moving about 8 feet to my right provides a wonderful background. I sit on a car stop and begin taking photos. The morning light was filtered by a thin layer of clouds creating a natural soft box. The great egret put on a great show and about 50 photos later it was time to see what else was happening in the park.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Nice series Morris. Obviously he cared more about his looks than you or the other photog.

You've got a supermodel there - with a whole repertoire of interesting poses.
