Reddish Chase

Here are a few more shots of Reddish Egrets from my last trip to Bolivar Flats in Texas during my FeatherFest field trip.  One Reddish Egret was fishing when another came in and started chasing him around.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II head

Aperture priority, 1/1000 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400, evaluative metering, +2/3 exposure compensation, 500mm

  2. I agree with Lyle on the landing shot. Just looks natural with a clean background.

    • Thanks Doug. It’s a challenge to get clean backgounds sometimes at Bolivar with buildings and ships around.
