Fish Racing

This Reddish Egret was trying to catch a fish but didn’t notice that he had scared another one out of the water right beside him.  Let the fish racing begin!  Taken at Bolivar Flats while laying down with my ground pod.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens and 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head

1/640 sec @ F7.1, ISO 500, evaluative metering, +1 exposure compensation, 700mm

    Were you lying in the water?

    • Not directly in the water for this shot. Was on a small sand bar just off shore. When the tide goes down at Bolivar, several rows of sand bars get exposed, which are great platforms to shoot from. I get wet sometimes when the tide comes in.

    • Thanks Doug. He was quite active that day at Bolivar. Another one of those “I’ll remember that” moments from 2012.
