One of my first days out with some new gear. This small swamp area at a local plantation should be the perfect place to shoot a few birds.
Yes, a Great Egret was there on the hunt. In theory a good easy subject. He’s hungry, food is there, I am unimportant.
All of the above was true except the bird would walk, stop and fly into bright sun. Next repeat, but fly into dark shade. Back and forth with me searching for buttons now in the wrong spot.
Finally I just made a general change and shot.
Wildlife photography means take what you can get.
