    Every year at this time we get close to 100 White Egrets, Cormorant's & Anhinga's that nest in a park at a near by lake. Lots of Pine trees, Cypress tree's and many other tree's I can't identify.
    Very Shady area so lighting is always tough, but sometimes works out well with such a white bird!

    The Anhinga's and Cormorants are really high in the trees but the Egrets are very low.

    I was using a Nikkor 200-400MM F4, ED, IF, VR lens


    Setting varied...all with in 200-400mm focal length

    Iso 400 or 500 ...lighting was changing constantly.
    Shutter varied from 1/250 for the still shots and 1/1250 for the inflights. Most of the time I used an Fstop of F8. Next time I will post settings with each pic

    sure make a fool of me!:lol: I wrote that cause I constantly see people asking you, especially with the eagle photos and you usually don't reply to it....so I just assumed it was "your thing" not to say..

    # 5 is very interesting but the lighting is soft and beautiful and the feathers look great.
