Great White Egret Morning Reflection

I was lucky enough to find the lake unusually calm and still while this Great White Egret basked in the early morning sun.

Canon 7D, Mark II, 100-400 L II w/1.4 tc III, handheld, f/8, 1/3200, ISO 320 @ 230 mm, evaluative metering @ 0 EC. LR and PS for noise reduction and sharpening. Cropped to 83% of original.

The clarity of the reflection is outstanding, Patrick. You’re handling of the whites looks great.

A nice wildlife reflection photo, Patrick. The vertical format works well with this type of shot and I agree with Mark that you did a fine job of controlling the exposure on the white feathers.

Thanks @Mark_Seaver and @Gary_Minish for the kind remarks.
