One of the goals in wildlife photography is to get a clean background without distracting elements to isolate the subject and to keep the eye of the person looking at the photo from wandering off of the main subject. With experience, you will automatically look at the backgrounds while framing the photo so that you can get into the best position for the shot. unfortunately, it sometimes (or most of the time) doesn’t work out so well. Here is a shot that emphasizes the challenges of shooting in Galveston. This white morph reddish egret was dancing around and lo and behold, the shipping lanes came into play with das boat messing up the shot.
