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 and snowy egret fishing in the salt marsh yesterday afternoon. It was cold out there but dinner still had to be caught.
Splendidi riflessi, sono scatti meravigliosi!!
It does help make the birds look nice. 🙂
Simply lovely reflections.
Lucky they were fishing in calm water at that time. 🙂
Cold comfort food – makes sense!
Lately I have mostly been seeing them catching and eating tiny fish and shrimp. But hey, whatever works!
The reflections in your images are truly amazing…
Thanks so much glad you enjoyed these.
I just love your reflection pictures – so clear! Are you having colder than usual weather, Phil? From what I see on the news, America is really going through it at the moment!
Wed., Thur., and Fri., we had what was for us record breaking cold. Bad news is our heating system is not built for real cold because it’s never supposed to be that cold here so we were even cold inside. Warmed up nicely today though and I had the motorcycle out. 🙂 Glad you liked these pics!
And he’s calm, like the water. Lovely!
To see a snowy calm even for a little while is unusual. They are always scampering back and forth and all excited about something.
Perfectly done, Phil. 🙂
Thank you Sylvia glad you enjoyed these!
Stunning captures. I just love the reflections.
I appreciate that, thank you.
You posted these images just for me, didn’t you Phil. My favorites, the Snowy and the Great. I do get the Great Egrets here but have a long wait to see them. Beautiful light and reflection in your wonderful captures.
I knew you would enjoy seeing the always lovely (and lively) egrets Linda, and I’m happy I could present some photos of these birds for you!
JUST beautiful – such lovely reflections and feather details!! These are so special, especially because the water is so dark blue against these wonderfully white birds.
That’s the real trick, trying to maintain detail in the white birds while hopefully keeping the background from going too dark. It works the best I think when the water shows up blue like this. Glad you liked them!
