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.
