The chemical engineer in me wants to call this “viscous water” but I won’t go there. Caught this White Morph Reddish Egret just at the right time when his beak separated. Haven’t seen this before with and Egret so it made for an interesting shot. Taken just after sunrise in the good ‘ol early morning golden light.
1/1000 sec @ F9, manual exposure, ISO 400, 700mm
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod and Wimberley II gimbal head.
Neat catch Tim. Pretty shot and light on the egret. Like the feather detail. I am thinking “viscous water” caused by improperly mixed polymer.;-)
