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.
This past week we had some snowy egrets relaxing and preening in the marsh just prior to sunset.
The air was calm with no breeze making the water still with a reflecting mirror effect.
All photos were taken within about 20 minutes of each other.
photogenic fowl 🙂
Ha! They are photogenic fowl! Thanks for looking and commenting!
WOW…that second image just knock me off my seat. Outstanding Phil.

Whatever the prize is you win! Absolutely amazing.
It turned the prize was a cookie! Lucky me! Thanks a million Lyle.
Gorgeous, each and every one. Can’t believe it was so still. Those reflections are amazing. 🙂
It was a surprise that is was so still considering the marsh area is right on the beach where it’s normally quite breezy!
Such magical images, Phil. What don’t my Snowys perform like that, instead of just pecking around on the grass? 😕 Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
Thank you so much Sylvia I appreciate it very much. Glad you enjoyed the happy snowballs and hope you have a terrific thanksgiving!
The reflections you captured in your photos create such interesting and engaging stories…Well done.
Hey thanks very much Charlie glad you liked seeing the fun snowys!
Utterly wonderful shots of some very elegant looking birds.
Although I tend to overlook the snowys, they are pretty birds. Thanks much Gunta!
Love how you captured the snowys in just the right lighting-the reflections are beautiful. The snowys are so calm and still! They must be admiring their reflections, too!
Thank you Leslie, these are pretty birds and it was nice that they were out at that time of evening to show them in a nice light.
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful!
Thank you so much glad you liked the snowys!
Competition winners, if ever I saw them! No 4 has to be a favourite, Phil! Happy Thanksgiving!
