Watery Wednesday #33:

20 Oct

Birds are not the photographic subject I am comfortable with.  Perhaps because most of the time I am with the small camera that has very limited range.  However, on that day this bird, egret I believe, was nearby and was busy and did not mind me snapping some shots.  Taken at a wetland nearby my house.

    I love to watch the egrets and herons. I like to photograph them too, but your right, the usually don’t like to cooperate.

    Ewok you’re right this is an egret. I agree birds are tough. Even with my 300mm I cannot get them as I like But… you did an outstanding job, the white of the egret is not easy to expose, you did this wonderfully and kept all the great color and detail in as well! I think you did a bang up job!

    please see mine here

    That’s really a great capture, since, I know how difficult it is to get them to cooperate! I have lots of tries but not a single one I would say is good…yet… Beautiful mosaic too!

    I’m horrible with birds,and I think it’s that my lens isn’t big enough. These are FANTASTIC, however!
