Well, this was kind of a fun – and lucky – capture.
I was taking pictures of the egrets and herons at a pond recently. It wasn’t an ideal situation as I was shooting into the early morning sun which creates a variety of challenges for photography, particularly with fast moving subjects. Nevertheless, I was clicking away, hoping to get something worthwhile and ended up with this shot.
The snowy egret was flying right at me and I captured the image as it flared its wings and touched the water’s surface. The reflection of the bird on the water was a nice add-on.
