Shades of Blue (with birdsong)



Just a simple image of a Snowy Egret (Egretta thula) today. I photographed this Egret as it stalked prey along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida.

This photo was taken around mid day, much later than I normally like to be out photographing because the light can get harsh. The reason why this image does not show that harshness is that the Snowy Egret was in the shade of a tree and that softened the light. The shade also created some wonderful shades of blue in the water.

With so many birds species there easily accessible it wasn’t long before she was hooked. By learning more about each species, she can anticipate their behaviour and create opportunities to obtain ever better images of those species.
