Great Egret, Black And White

I finished this in B&W for a web site I work with, then decided to publish here too.

I’m sure color versions will make their way here. This was taken using a spot metering and fast shutter method. While it doesn’t work with all images a big white bird is a perfect subject.

Birds were heading for good placing to hunker down.

As bad as it looked, turned out to be a few drops and wind.

Better to be safe though.

These two walked along the shallows picking and poking. They didn’t give the other a thought at all.

Above the Spoonbill caught a big tadpole, the Egret just kept looking on his own.

I think the Spoonbill is a little too big for the usual Snowy attitude.

The Rain Held Off, Great Egret

In the morning it was a typical Lowcountry fall day. Dark, almost rain, sun peeking through.

Clouds can add some nice drama to a white bird flight shot.

If the rain did open up here we had a problem. Well, mostly Ellen. I had dropped her off to check a dike trail but I had to keep going. This was a grass track and no room to leave a car.

Got lucky. Egret flight, rain waited until later.
