Great Egret – Posturing

An early morning at High Island Smith Oaks Rookery.  The weather forecast was showing “stay inside”.  Perhaps thinking it would render some different opportunities, off I go.  It was cold and miserable but with thinning clouds I was hoping for a break.  Ok, on the positive side, the wind was blowing about 25 mph keeping the skeeters at bay – except for the one that found my cheek.  I managed to capture a few pics and here is one posturing.

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

    Nice job controlling the whites and exposure. I need to get out there, even though I’ll be skeeter bait for sure. They like me more than other people for some reason.

      Thanks Tricia! At times the mosquitos could almost carry you away. But, when I get home and look over the pictures I just forget about the bites. Well, maybe not all of them. LOL.
