p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Great egret landing sequence


The background lighting changed dramatically yet my subject was in the same light the entire time. A great example of when manual exposure wins out over auto exposure. I did have to pull back the zoom a bit to keep my subject in frame as it got closer.

Excellent sequence. Nice composition on each of them. Exposure is spot on for the white feathers.

Nice sequence Morris; almost like the bird responded on cue. On my screen the whites are tending toward being a bit hot. #4 is an excellent position, but #1 has the great light.

Wonderful series Morris. Such a beautiful bird and well capture.
#3 for me too, I love the 'shrouded' look.

Thank you Don,
There were a lot of birds coming in and I waited for one that took a path through the sweet light. The whites are bright yet on my monitor I'm seeing detail. 4 has the dark background going for it and a bright area where it's gong and I agree the first has the background is stunning light.
