I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
On a dark grey and gloomy morning, this great egret emerges out of the dark choppy water of the marsh pond on an unknown flight mission…
Fabulous picture Phil!
I appreciate that Adrian thank you!
This sounds very mysterious, Phil. It’s like the opening sentence of a thriller.🙂 Wonderful capture again.
Ooooo thanks Sylvia, I was trying to make it spooooky 😯
Glad you like it!🙂
Very cool contrast of the dark water and the ultra white egret!
White egret reminds me of our all white kitty Ripley. No wait, one is thin and sleek and the other looks like a sack of cement.😉
I’m the word sleek is in regard to Ripley, right?!
Heh heh, well…
I like the picture, Phil. Are your results still unknown too?
Glad you like the egret Paula!
MRI ended up being this morning but won’t know results until next week when I also have the nerve mapping test. So the saga continues. Thanks for asking.
Keep me posted, Phil. I will be thinking positive thoughts for you.
I appreciate that Paula.
Strong against the backdrop Phil
Thanks for checking this out Scott and glad you like it.
That’s gorgeous. Geez for a second there I thot you were going to break into poetry!
I actually didn’t mean to use the word “dark” so many times. heh heh, looks like I’m not much of a poet and that’s a good thing.
Wow beautifully captured Phil.
Thanks a million Edith!
A wonderful shot Phil!!!!
I really appreciate you looking and commenting Jan!
He’s the light! 🙂
He is very bright white!🙂
Splendido scatto Phil. Stupendo!!!
I hope he has a great day. Gloomy not in his future I hope.
Gloomy continues to be in our future for the rest of today, tonight, and into tomorrow. Even the birds look miserable.😦
Supposed to be nice by Sat. though! 🙂
Dark, grey and gloomy here, too… not to mention the gale force gusts of wind that might knock the gulls around. Don’t know if they’d do the same to this egret.
Apros pro of nothing….. hubby used to call every egret we’d see around here Cecil. He had a habit of giving strange names to everything.
It continues to be here certainly for the rest of today, tonight, and into tomorrow. Even the birds look miserable.😦
Supposed to be nice by Sat. though!🙂
The only egret we have named is “Radar” but that’s because of his antennas, so we always know it’s him.
Such a contrast, that gorgeous egret looks fantastic against the darkness of the water! Now you will have to write the book!
I could try starting a book but can’t think of much more to write on the subject. I think I need more inspiration Maggie.
This is a super contrast between the bright graceful egret and the dark choppy waters. Well done, Phil.
Hey glad you liked that Steve, thanks!
Beautiful shot with that dark water in the background.
Thank you, I appreciate you looking and commenting.
Beautiful dynamic image.
