I photographed this Great Egret along the Wildlife Drive at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. I was using a 400mm lens when this Egret landed and walked by. I could not get the whole Egret in one shot so as it was walking along the shore I tried a few 2 shot panos and used the 2 shot series that worked the best for assembling into one image. After I assembled my 2 shot pano, I duplicated the white feathers in another layer and pulled more detail out of the white feathers, since the Egret was in bright sunlight.
Beautiful image that shows the elegance of the bird.
Thanks! They are an interesting and graceful subject.
