Like a cat about to pounce…

Egret, Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, Florida

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.

    • Hi Len, I am loving Texas!! Big Bend is fantastic. It’s just like a western movie out here. All dry and hot and cactuses and canyons. I’ve read some people’s reviews who thought it was hell, but I love it. It’s beautiful. Oh, and there are scary little hairy pig like creatures with giant teeth!! A dog was attacked by one, and I was growled at (seriously scary, it was in the bushes so I only heard it, sounded real angry) but I haven’t managed to photograph one. They are called “javalinas” (haa-va-lina)

    This is a great shot. I love the out-of-focus greenery in the reflection. A nice contrast to the bird itself. Gives it an almost 3-D effect.

    • Thank you very much Steve! Yes, that green reflection of the mangroves made up for not getting the perfectly still water. I took this only 5 minutes after the egret with the perfect reflection. That’s the difference between 6:25am and 6:30am!

    Sorry to do the camera geek thing again, but what focal length did you use?

  4. Beautiful image Anne. Lovely light and colors and nice job on the exposure.

    I think this is my favorite of the many excellent images you’ve posted over the last few months. The reflected vegetation is amaaazing.
