Egret with Dragonfly by Dave Ficke

October 2021 - Egret with Dragonfly

About the Image(s)

I was out to the San Jacinto Wildlife Area last week. A bit early for the migratory bird that show up but wanted to get out.

This is a shot of an egret with a dragonfly in his bill. I asked him to turn for a better shot but he was fairly indifferent to my request.
Nikon Z6-2 with an 80-400mm lens at 360mm, f5.6 at 1/1000 second. Stopped down the EV by 2/3 stop to help compensate for the white of the egret.

I hate it when they don't do as they're told, and we ask so nicely! Love those dragonflies, great shot.   Posted: 10/14/2021 00:41:03

A good capture of the egret feeding. The background is a big distraction and the focus a bit soft.   Posted: 10/17/2021 10:47:32
