Great Egret out of the dark


Just when I was thinking it would be nice to have a candle in a little lantern on the canoe incase it got too dark on the river,  I realized the opportunity to get these bright white birds on a dark background.  My favourite look for photographing horses, finally I would have the opportunity with wildlife.  While others looked on wonder what the heck I was photographing in the dark, I created these.  The wonders of shooting on manual.

Headed South

You know fall is here when the frogs hibernate and the Egrets leave the Beaver Valley, these three were flying in the biggest flock of Egrets I have seen in locally, at least 30 birds were flocking to fly south.
