Egret Reflection

The Egret stands still as a statue, not a ripple left in the water from the last time he took a step.

I made this image during my visit to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge in Florida.

Just a reminder that I have very limited internet access this week but I have scheduled these images to go up on the blog for you to enjoy.

    Nice capture, Anne. Beats my egret shot. Assume you were using a long lens for this.

    • Hi Steve, thank you very much. I had lots of opportunities while I was in Florida. I went back to this wildlife refuge 3 times before I got the still water I wanted for these reflections. I was using a 400mm f/5.6L lens. It is much smaller and lighter than the f/2.8 (I think it’s 2.8) but I find the aperture perfect. I would want to haul around the heavier lens. I made these reflection images handheld.

  3. Wow very nice Anne! Perfect reflection and I like how there is nothing else in the photo!

    • Thank you very much Michael. I remember trying to backup into the bushes so I could get the whole reflection in the frame. Sometimes with that 400mm lens I was too close. But I’m not complaining about it ;)

    You could flip this image and we wouldn’t know the difference! Just phenomenal – your photography and the bird’s stance!

    • Hi Andy, I love the bird’s stance too, it’s like he took a step forward and then froze long enough for all the ripples to go away. Thank you very much for your kind comments, friend.

  8. This is amazing…the waterline is so invisible that you can’t be sure where the real bird and its reflection meet!

    That’s great! I love the perfectly neutral background; wouldn’t even know it was water if it wasn’t standing in it. Wow!

    • Thank you very much Marc. It was nice that the light was perfect for capturing the blue water. Lots of times if it is just a little brighter the water appears grey and it isn’t nearly as nice.
