p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Edgar the egret


Edgar is the eldest son of Finger Licking, a great egret that I had the pleasure of knowing for many years. Both are fee ranging birds and this spring Finger did not return to his summer home, the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area. I miss having Finger walk up to me and follow me around. While I've known Edgar for many years, he simply tolerates people and this allows me to get close and take some great portraits. I'm nothing as close as I could get to Finger who I once took head shots of with a 50mm lens.

Very nice Morris. Nicely exposed with super detail and soft backgrounds.

Beautiful shots Morris. I like the feather shot and the final preening one the best.

Nice, Morris. Egrets seem to have a lot of personality.

Very well done! I see you have about 150mm more on the D500 than my 200-500mm, but still, you must have some birds that aren't shy. I shout an Egret last Friday that wouldn't let me get closer than 20 yards to him. I think I like Egrets more than Blue Herons.

What a pleasure to see these Morris! The preening shots are spectacular. Hopefully you and Edgar will eventually have a "closer" relationship and with some luck, maybe Finger will return.

Wonderful set; thanks for posting.

Thank you Kim,
Finger was an old man, I suspect he has passed. We will see about Edgar
