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.

I guess if you eat enough, you will feel full.

Excellent, Tina! I especially like the first. That's a beauty of a shot.
Sorry to hear about your ear infection. Those are painful! I hope things will get better soon.

Great shots, Tina. I really like the eye on all of them. You can see his concentration!

Welcome back Tina and a great series to start. I like the third one with the caught fish and the dark background really enhances the white of the bird in them all. Well done.

Wonderful shots Tina. I love that first one. The pose is just so vital.
They are all really herons, yes? Here the Herons will go to more shallow water to feed when levels are up. We see it regularly with the changing depths of the lakes and ponds.

Thanks Jo.
Many thanks Lil. They all belong to the same family, but these are known as egrets. I believe this one to be a great egret. I used to call them herons for ages. Thanks for the info on the water levels. I am not at that particular place often enough to see the changes in levels. More rain coming, so it will stay full for a while longer.
