Great Egret Early Morning Fly-In

These were from many years ago when a group of us would meet at a local Wildlife Area. These images were taken a few minutes after the sun was starting to rise and had not gotten high enough to light the scene. We were still setting up our cameras. This Great Egret suddenly flew in and I was able to get a couple of images. I had not gotten to upping my ISO yet on the camera, so there is a slight motion blur because of the very slow shutter speed. But I still liked the images because of the straight on Egret landing and it’s wing positions. I also added a little High Pass sharpening on the Egret itself to diminish some of the motion blur. Images taken with 400mm Canon DO lens with a 1.4x teleconverter.
