Great Egret Flying In

The featured image is a Great Egret flying in and landing on the branches that were in the water at a small nature area in Northern NJ. I used to photograph there years ago and since have moved from that area. I was going through images and decided to use these in my blog. As I was working on these images, I liked the reflections in the very still, calm water, giving a smooth mirror image without any small ripples or waves. All images were with a Canon 400mm DO lens.

Later that morning the water started to have a few waves. The Egret stayed for quite a while and seemed content to stay on the branches.

  1. I like the landing shot as well. But I also like the reflection in the others despite the branch interfering below, especially the first with the egret doing the two-step. 🙂

    • Thanks Steve! I liked the reflections because the water was so still, it was like a mirror. I debated touching out the branch on the Egret’s reflection, but thought it was better left in.
