I am still going through older images and cleaning up my backup hard drives. The images here are from a older trip to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville NJ. We noticed a few Cattle Egrets in breeding plumage. Usually we do not see Cattle Egrets here, so it was fun to photograph them. The featured image is one on the top of a small tree along the start of the Wildlife Drive. The other images are from various locations further along the Wildlife Drive. All images are @ 800mm using a 400mm DO lens with a 2X teleconverter.
Love to see them with the orange highlights! Even more beautiful in breeding colors. William — “What a wildly wonderful world, God! You made it all, with Wisdom at Your side, made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.” Psalms 104 The Message
Thanks William! Yes, God certainly gave us lots of wonderful & beautiful photo subjects!!
Wonderful photos, Reed!
Thanks Belinda! They are fun to photograph! They are very perky little birds!
All nice shots, Reed. My favorite would be the flyby.
Thanks Steve! I usually like photographing flying birds! But I photograph what I can get!
These are awesome captures, Reed, wonderful detail and colors!!
Thanks Donna! Sometimes you get lucky and have good subjects to photograph close by!
