When I decided to get back in to photography I never imagined that I would be interested in photographing birds. That is, until I had a chance to go to Rockport, Texas to photograph birds in the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. This is where I photographed these fighting Egrets. We were near a rookery when these two Great Egrets began to spar. It was quite the experience. Photographing birds like this is quite tricky. I learned how to do so mostly through trial and error. Advice and reading helped but it was only when presented with the situation that I really understood what to do. I’ve been able to use this technique many times with great results.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II Lens set on 400 mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/2000th of a second and the ISO set at 640. This was a single image processed in Lightroom.
