    • Thank you, Reed! I too love photographing this bird and it’s elegance. You know, I thought the first shot was a throw-away, but I loved that shot for some reason and so tried processing it in B&W. Bingo! 😊

    • Thank you so much! The B&W shot didn’t process well in color, but I loved that wingspan so before I clicked delete, I decided to see what B&W would do. Presto! A photo saved and now loved! 😊

  1. Gorgeous birds! None of them in New Zealand as far as I am aware.The flight shot with the coastal backdrop for me.

  2. I like the last one because the leg and foot in the back look a bit like the neck and head of a Canada goose. At least to me. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Minna! At home, we’re also only accustomed to one or two here or there. So seeing flocks of them this past winter while vacationing in Florida was a thrill! I couldn’t get enough of them. πŸ™‚

  3. Sometimes it’s just so very difficult to pick just one. Know the feeling. But if I HAD to…. I think it would be “Snowy Egret Feet in Flight”. Those graceful wings get me every time. I could almost reach out and tickle those soft feather tips.

  4. Fantastic set, Donna. Your lead B&W is stunning in its gracefulness and tonality. Egrets can look quite gawky at times and you’ve really captured them in beautiful poses. Great post.

  5. I love the bottom right, in flight along the beach! I love photos with the blue water in the background. Just beautiful! Of course they are all beautiful, you take awesome photos Donna!

    • Thank you, Belinda! The B&W photo in actual color just didn’t do it justice, and I almost tossed it. But that wingspan had my eye, so I gave B&W a try, and was thrilled with the result! 😊
