The White Morph Reddish Egret was a bird in which I wanted to find and get pictures of from the first time I saw one. Reddish Egrets are one of my favorite species, and finding a Morph that was also awesome looking and unique really intrigued me.
Early last summer (May I believe) my father and I found this one. The bird was quite cooperative and let us hang around him often times coming to close to fit in frame. Unfortunately, it was a gray and dreary day so exposure was tough. Combine that with being one of my first times using the 500mm and its safe to say there are a few shots I wish I could have a re-do on! All were taken with a 7D-500mm combo and handheld.
In these images, this Morph is hunting through seaweed beds and eating pipefish.
