About the Image(s)

I'm not much of a wildlife photographer, but when the opportunity arises I hope to capture something. This photo was captured at the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. I was sitting in my parked car when the birds started coming in to feed. After several attempts I finally was able to photograph this egret. The sharpness holds up pretty well on medium sized enlargements.

Technical: Canon 5D II, Canon 100mm - 400mm IS L series lens (older version), 1/750, f/8, ISO 200, Focal Length 400.

Nice capture of the Great white egret. You have nice separation of the head from the wings, both wings are visible, and everything is sharp and clear. Phtographing birds is not easy, I am still learning and I have been doing them for 2 1/2 years. It is not at all uncommon to have many throw aways, unless you are a pro at it. Very nice.   Posted: 12/10/2019 13:13:27
