Great Egret Catching A Snack

Going through Backup Drives working on images that I did not have time to adjust or work on when I was still working. This is from a photo trip to the J.N. Ding Darling NWR in Florida 2 years ago. As we were walking along the Wildlife Drive I noticed this Great Egret working its way in the water channel along the Drive. It got to a sunlit section and I was able to get a couple of images before it flew off. Images taken with a Canon R with a Tamron 150-600mm with a 1.4X Teleconverter @ 840mm, f/16, 1/640 sec. Because it was in the bright sun I also set the Camera to a -2/3 exposure compensation to hold detail in the white Egret.

  1. Great result. I have the Nikon version of this lens and ofter combine it also with a 1.4 tele converter. I’m very happy with that combination.

    • Thanks Donna! One of my favorite birds to photograph! They are Big and usually cooperative! Easy to fill the frame and do not fly off when trying to photograph them!

  2. Excellent shots – like that golden/copper hue as the backdrop – makes the white feathering really pop nicely.
