snowy egret

This was an early photo. I was at a preserve and had very little zoom on the camera I was using. They had one of those scopes mounted on the boardwalk and I thought it would be a fine idea to put my camera up the the lense. It created a halo effect and there are other flaws as well, but I love this shot. I did click at the right time.

Regarding Water


I took this shot at Lake Alice, in Gainesville, FL. The bird is an Anhinga, sometimes called a snake-bird, because when it's in the water its body is submerged and the bend of its neck has a snake like appearance from a distance.
