The Stand Out

How do you make a white bird stand out?  White bird + golden light + dark background + down low + eye contact + water+ reflection = Stand Out.

Got several action shots of this White Morph Reddish Egret along with this pose against a grassy background.  I’m pleased with how this one came out.  Took a few shots with spot metering and checked the histogram to confirm the exposure was good and then switched to manual exposure mode using the settings that I came up with.

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

1/800 sec @ F9, manual exposure, ISO 400
