Great Egrets in a Fog

I’m a big fan of foggy weather.  I love it when the sun comes poking though the fog early in the morning.  That was not to be on this outing to High Island rookery in late March.  Lots of fog with lots of clouds.  Tried to make the best of it with some Great Egret shots.  Another nice to have at High Island is a little wind so that the breeding plumage feathers get some movement and definition.  It also gives them a “beatnik” look, IMO.  Although, I may just be having a flashback from the 60’s…

All taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on tripod, no flash.
