Another series of images from previous photo trips years ago. Here, even if you wanted to go to a local park, the entrances are blocked by Police Cars. So they are quite serious about staying at home. This is a series of Snowy Egret FlyBy images from a previous trip years ago to the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in Sanibel, Florida. The Snowy Egret images were photographed @ 300mm with a Canon 100-400mm lens.
When I photograph at the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge in Sanibel Florida, I like working an area. If you wait and look around you can find photo subjects that basically come to you. If you constantly move around your subjects see you coming and move away. Shorebirds working a Shoreline coming up to you, Cormorants or Anhingas surfacing near you and my favorite, birds flying over or by you. I like photographing birds in flight instead of just sitting there.
Little Blue Heron Flyby, 300mm f/4, 1.4x teleconverter
Immature Bald Eagle, very early in the morning near sunrise. Very little light, and far out in the distance. Severe Crop of image.
This image is from months ago, taken at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville NJ. I was waiting on the Wildlife Drive for Black Skimmers to come back around for another series of shots of them skimming along the water, when these Snowy Egrets flew by me. I shot a quick series, but did not think I got anything and went back to the Skimmers. Looking later (work gets in the way!) I was surprised when I looked at this series.
