Great Egret in Flght

This is one of many Great Egret photos I took over the summer. I particularly liked the wing shape in this one.

Nick, this is a great, Egret in flight shot. The pose and white tones are excellent. My favorite bits are the touches of orange/yellow in the feathers.

Thanks Mark, I like the orange/yellow colors also.

A nice in-flight capture, Nick. I like the wing positions also. It looks like you had to use some noise reduction? as the details seem to be smoothed out, particularly in the neck and head (when viewing the large version). Still, a nice shot!

Thanks Gary. I did use some noise reduction. Maybe a little more than I needed to.
