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.
A great egret looks elegant as it jumps off from the marsh pond on a recent afternoon.
As often as I see these birds I tend to forget how graceful those huge white wings can look.
Wow… you have timed to perfection, Phil…
What an elegant pose, great shot 🙂
Thank you, they are pretty birds. 🙂
Wow, that’s an extraordinary photo. I like your comment too. I’ve never seen one flying, at least not a still shot. It is very graceful.
We see these birds quite frequently but I always enjoy watching them fly. Thanks for looking and commenting!
Gorgeous Phil! Great wing and head placement with light filtering through part of the wings…..and add the water drops. Great capture! Thanks for sharing!
I appreciate you checking out this photo Ricky and glad you liked it!
Such an exquisite photo, I love it, it makes me feel good just to share it with others.
Thanks very much Charlie, glad you liked it!
Beautiful capture, thanks for sharing all your magnificient photos with me and others.
I greatly appreciate your very kind comments Linda, thanks.
Well I’m very happy you liked seeing the egret, thanks!
So many beautiful and graceful lines.
Despite the fact that these birds are fairly common here, I still can not help myself grabbing a few shots when they get up to something.
Grace in action. You really caught the beauty of the wings. Looks like he was talking, too. 🙂
I believe he was yacking on about something. If it’s not the blue herons commenting about everything it’s these guys.
Thanks for checking this out.
Glad you enjoyed the egret pic Sally, thanks!
Those graceful white feathers very nearly led to their extinction, they’re that beautiful.
I know, hard to think they were hunted nearly to extinction but now I can see one next to the Walmart on occasion. 🙂
They really are glorious birds!
Yes indeed, they are pretty birds, and often quite active as well. 🙂
Thanks a bunch Pat!
Oh wow! 🙂
Thank you so much for looking!
Yes, truly elegant!
They are often very elegant birds and generally quite active around here. Always up to something.
