This Great Egret fans it's specialized feathers call Aigrettes to try and attract a mate to build a nest and breed with. As you can see there are several interested prospects in the background. Image captured in swamps of Southeast Louisiana. Full 300mm capture then heavily cropped. Thanks for all views,comments and votes. Much Appreciated!
Awesome shot here!!Nice PoV and I also love the background birds which kinda blurred that give much effect on this one!Perfect!
I agree with mark!Awesome picture!
Yes M. digicam.
Great processing in colors and sharpness.
crispy clearness, great one!
Great shot, E.J.! "Only" a 9 because it´s a single RAW (you know my attitude).
Beautiful birds - just wish all the birds were in focus, but with a 300mm a great attempt & shot!
This has turned out to be a great theme -- I love the color and light, I only wish every element of the picture was in focus but that is my taste and I understand your POV --Great job!!
Thanks Bryan and I respect your POV. When I shot it I tried to just put the emphasis on the bird which was trying to attract a mate. Thanks for your view.
Also, birds in background out of focus gives the image more Depth.
Perfection! I love the different layers the out of focus birds give this photo. Great job!
Love the DOF but I would have removed birds in the background. Yeah I know purist won't agree. :+)
This one is spectacular! Great job!
Outstanding. Making me homesick.
Real great. Nice to see what you can do with a single image
