We finally got to go to one of our favorite National Wildlife Refuges, the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe NWR in Oceanville NJ. On this day the wildlife was few and far between but it was still fun to get out and photograph. The cloudscapes & landscapes were Great and the Green Headed Flies were not biting as much as other visits! So it was a Great Day to be out and photograph! For this post I am using images of a Great Egret that seemed like it was posing for me instead of flying off. We did see quite a few other Great Egrets but most were far off in the distance.
Beautiful study, Reed!
Thanks so much Eliza! They are fun to photograph!
Nice shots, Reed! Love the detail!
Thanks Steve! They are fun photo subjects!
Wonderful details on the feathers, Reed. It is so easy to blow out the highlights of birds that are as bright white as these Great Egrets.
Thanks Mike! I usually go quite a bit to the minus side of exposures on bright white birds. But with the Canon R, I do not need to go as far as my other Canon bodies. Plus the files seem to be “cleaner” overall than my other Canon bodies. Thanks again!
Thanks! They are fun photo subjects! Plus a large subject so easy to fill the image!
Wonderful captures of a magnificant bird in his natural habitat.
Thanks so much! They are fun to photograph!
Great feather texture, and wonderful setting on the rocks. Nicely done!
