Easter Eggs??

It’s almost that time again where kids and some big adults get out and look for Easter eggs.  This Great Egret has two of her own and already colored blue.  Taken at High Island rookery this morning.  It was cool, very windy and not much light.

Nikon D4, Nikon 500mm, f/5.6, 1/640, ISO 500

    Nice job on the exposure David. It’s hard not to blow out the whites on a mostly white bird.

    Thanks Doug, this one was soften to take most of the detail out. I only selectively sharpen the eye and beak. I started off shooting in aperature priority. As you know there is a wide swing of views that can happen quickly so I moved over to manual with better results. I might add, your full frame with the 500mm would be ideal.
