Did you hear me!

Snowy Egrets are just fun to watch. This one was shot on the Black River hand-held from my Zodiac on 7-28-20. I spent around 5 minutes with it and have three vary nice photographs of the Snowy playing around. The other two I will post later on.

Thank you for stopping by.

Pertinent technical details or techniques:

Canon 7Dll, Sigma 150-600mm lens, 313mm, F7.1, 1/5000, ISO 640. In DxO Photo Lab, I increased the exposure by .47, lowered the highlight by 23, increased vibrancy by 23 and cropped the shot by 50%.

Pleasing composition with excellent detail in the white plumage. I’m really enjoying the open beak. I’ve noticed that in many of your images, I don’t see a single cloud so you must have pretty decent weather or you only shoot on cloud free days?

I like the fact you were able to have some greenery in the background instead of a pure blue sky. Nice pose with the open beak.

I like the smidgen of a BG. I’m wondering about lightening the branch a bit – the Shadows slider should do enough. For me, the bird is very small in the frame without much else of complimentary interest. But I guess zooming in more would have lost the trees, even if you went vertical. Look forward to seeing the others.
