Great Egret Up Close -This same Great Egret just kept moving around the pond giving me opportunity after opportunity to make photographs. My only regret was that the lighting was pretty poor due to the heavy overcast. That said, the lack of direct sunlight allowed for better exposure of the white feathers. Too much direct sunlight can lead to overexposure of the brilliant white of the bird’s feathers causing a loss of detail.
I followed this Great Egret all around the boardwalk at Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center. It was a windy morning and many of my images have wonderful detail of the feathers that are blown out away from the bird’s body. I took a huge number of photos and have several here to enjoy.
