Some more from my session last month. I went back looking for both the egret and pelican, but none in sight. The water level was up quite a bit, might have had something to do with it, who knows! Haven't been back since with this stupid ear infection, and being away.
spot metered on the bird, which created the darker background, taken late in the afternoon.
Dig the long neck!
I guess if you eat enough, you will feel full.
