I had pulled back my lens, as I often do, to catch the full flight of this Great Egret.
The images turned out to be a nice example of keeping perspective in the photographs. There can always be something to show off what it is like in their swamps.
Above we have the Spanish Moss in the frame and below the Egret is an Alligator floating by.
Cypress trees usually are draped in the Moss and their distinct shape adds interest.
The Alligator remained in background. By itself, not in a series, the surrounding area still makes each individual image stand up well.
This same birds flight gave a whole new look when climbing up to the nest. Trees, woods, and resting Cormorants now provide background.
Anyway, this is why I like to shoot a little wider than other photographers.
