Love Birds

“He’s  just not into you” doesn’t apply in this case.  Love was is the air for both of these Great Egrets  during mating season at High Island’s rookery.  Used spot metering on these white bird to get the proper  exposure which helped to darken the background.  It’s always my goal to get a heart shape formed between the two birds necks.  Got close on this one.

    Tim, this one is just incredible, I can’t wait to take a class from you. Just after we spoke, my dog was diagnosed with jaw cancer and told she only has a few months to go so I am focused on her right now. Will get with you in the near future though and thanks for sharing your photos,

    • Thanks David. I need to spend more time at the rookery next year. That was my plan this year but life got in the way.
