The Landing

Caught this Snowy Egret as he was coming in for a landing while fishing.  He ended up catching the fish but his landing poses made for better photos.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500MM F4 IS II lens with 1.4X III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head

1/1250 sec @ F14, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, -1/3 exposure compensation
