…morning light is magic…

Love in the Air

Made my first trip to High Island’s rookery last Monday and the birds are out in force.  Lots of activity with mating dances in full breeding plumage.  Some Great Egrets sitting on eggs already. Caught this Great Egret mating shot before the sun came up.  Not enough light to get sharp photos so went into blur mode.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head.

1/13 sec @ F4, ISO 5000, evaluative metering 082_High Island_03232015-2

  1. They have everything–soft lights, beautiful surroundings, etc., except privacy.

  2. Thanks Stephen. Nope, no privacy this time. Although, only a couple of us on the platform at this time before sunrise but that changed shortly afterwards as the platform filled up, even on a Monday.
