Natures turn…….

Under The Wing

These were taken at the Smith Oaks Rookery in High Island, Texas.  The first one was taken early morning under a thin overcast which can be good.  The second was shot a little later in the morning the next day under a full sun.  I have darken around the egret to help control the harsh background lighting giving it a better appearance since lighting conditions were changing quickly.  Shortly after, I packed up and headed home.  While on the way home I drove by another location and was rewarded with a willing photo subject.  Will share it soon.

    I really like the first one David. The color tones work well here.
