This Egret Can Dance (Six Photographs)

Egret_To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

When I took the first shot I thought now here’s a bird that can dance, and it kept on going. Bright sun with a white object demands underexposure for detail; my exposure compensation was minus 1.5 to maintain the detail in the white feathers. By far my favorite photos of 2016 – so far.

    • Thanks. Under-exposing for white subjects should better understood. Your camera sees gray.
