Great Egret by Karen Harris

April 2021 - Great Egret

About the Image(s)

We just returned from a two week trip to Florida. I caught this shot of a great egret flying in the Indian River area near Jensen Beach, FL. He was rather cooperative in that he kept taking off and coming back to the same place over and over. Nikon D750, ISO 400, 1/1000 sec, 28-300 lens at 48mm.

Terrific image, Karen. Yes, they really are that white on a sunny day. You should have a spot on a wall for this one.   Posted: 04/13/2021 09:54:54

Respect. A great image of a bird in flight, still something I strive to achieve. Catching/placing it against the perfect background really makes it a winner.   Posted: 04/13/2021 16:17:01

Fantastic picture of an egret in flight. There is nothing to improve. I had to look up Jensen Beach since I had never heard of it. We usually go on the Gulf coast since I had a friend who lived in Bradenton in the winter. FL was our last trip in Feb. 2020.

This would certainly do well in Nature if you enter exhibitions. Birds in flight are a challenge and you met it!
