Snowy Egret Fishing

Here is a shot of a Snowy Egret catching a small fish at Bryan Beach, TX.  Took this in May before the pond dried up.  Taken with the ground pod while laying in the muck along the shoreline of the pond at sunrise.  I was pleased with how he caught the fish under his wing.  I planned it that way…..yea right……;)

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on Skimmer ground pod with Sidekick gimbal mount.

1/640 sec @ F5.6, + 2/3 exposure compensation, spot metering, ISO 400, no flash

    • Thanks David. I should have had a little faster shutter speed but it works.
