About the Image(s)

White Egret Displaying was created a few years ago at Gatorland in Orlando that has a very big rockery. You can almost touch the nesting birds all used to humans. I used my Nikon D4 with the prime Nikkor 600 mm f/4 on a tripod with a gimbal head, and with these settings: ISO 250, f/8 and 1/1500 sec. The bird was busy preening.
The original image was flipped horizontally and the rotated counterclockwise to get the current orientation. It was adjusted for color, a little clarity and cropped.

What a great idea to flip the image and rotate it! The crisp feathers and its bright staring eye add to the effectiveness of this fabulous image. This image captures the egret's beauty and nuances very well.   Posted: 01/09/2020 17:31:59

Isaac, Good idea to flip this one. I like the detail that the closer crop shows. Not sure if you could dodge the dark area on the head which is blocked out. Bruce   Posted: 01/14/2020 17:52:15
