White Egret with Catch by Mervyn Hurwitz

May 2021 - White Egret with Catch

About the Image(s)

Taken at our local rookery, where the birds are very active at the moment raising young chicks in the nests. This Egret caught a Moorhen chick to feed to its young.
Canon 40D Tamron 150-600 mm at 483mm
ISO 640, f8, 1/4000secs Exposure comp. -0.7

I used ISO 640 as it was early in the morning and had not yet lowered the ISO as I should have. I reduced the noise in Topaz Denoise AI and also used Topaz Sharpener AI

Awesome capture, Mervyn! I love the shot and I didn't know Egrets fed other chicks to their chicks! the reflection is fabulous.

The stems behind the bird's tail are a bit blurred, perhaps darken them a bit? I might add a bit of a vignette.

I think this is my favorite Mervyn photo! Excellent.   Posted: 05/07/2021 20:48:26
