Focused Stare Down
This White Morph Reddish Egret was very focused as he was searching for breakfast. Had to widen the depth of field to F11 to get his head in focus with being so close. No noise reduction on this shot.
Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4x III mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II head
1/800 sec @ F11, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, + 1 2/3 exposure compensation
Very nice full framed shot. Love the detail and light.

Thanks Doug. He was lots of fun to photograph. Hope to find him again over the holidays.

That light really accentuates the stare! Glad I’m not the fish.

Thanks Lyle. I’m pleased on how this one turned out. He ended up not going after the fish. Probably scared him away with the evil eye.
