Snowy Egret

While going through my photos I took the other day of the snowy catching the fish, I actually liked this one better so I just wanted to share. Again shot with the FD 500mm F4.5 lens fully manual focus.

Nice shot of this white birds. It is hard to this quality in this type of scens, white subjet and darker BG. But i would like to know how do you shot at f/1.8 with a f/4.5 lens as you tell us in your Note?

Hi Adam,
a very nice picture of this fishing bird.
You have good control of the whites. Good details and sharpness. Well composed and nice POV. The reflection is a nice bonus.
Well done.

Hi Adam

Wow.... this is just simply brilliant! You have managed the white very well. Good timing. Nice reflection, just a shame the head is cut off. Seeing the reflection in it's entirity would have been great. TFS.

Hello Adam,
Excellent action shot of this Egret, sharp details and I like the ruffled plumage. A bit more space at the bottom would have been even better.
TFS, Ulla

Hi Adam,
Whow, amazing shot, crisp and clear but the reflection in the water makes it extra special, a little comment: a pity that in the reflection the head is not complete.
Great work. TFS

Bellissima foto. Complimenti ciao gigicacco

Spot on, Adam!
This is a superb capture of the Snowy Egret, one that I can't fault. I think the lighting, compo. and reflection of the water are excellent.
TFS, regards, Ivan

I like this one even better than your previous post, Adam.
The close-up really exposes the fine details and the excellent exposure.
Great pose of this snowy standing thigh high in the water,
and great moment with him catching the fish.
I like the ripples and the reflection in the water as well.
A pity the very top of the head in the reflection got cut off.
A beautiful image. TFS. : )
