Backlit Snowy Egret
Here is a Snowy Egret coming in for a landing at Brazos Bend State Park in TX. Taken early in the morning with some good ‘ol back lighting. I tracked this Snowy as he flew across the water and saw that he was going to be back-lit and fired away as he spread his wings for the landing.
Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens, handheld
Aperture priority, 1/4000 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400, partial metering, +2/3 exposure compensation
