Perched Egret (Three Photographs)

I took more than my normal shots of Egrets this year because of an abundance of Egrets and a new longer lens. It’s a tough bird to expose well. You need to under expose to get detail in the white, the more you do that the darker the background. While you could use luminance masks to help with this it’s better to get the most detail in the whites and detailed background in camera. That was my approach here. I must say that except for one of two of the egrets I saw they were willing subjects. I plan to post more photographs of the egrets in the future, fishing, flying, preening and resting.
