I photographed this Great Egret at the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge near Rockport, TX. I am planning a trip to the region later this week to photograph beautiful landscapes and local/migratory birds. The Great Egret is widely found in the Refuge and throughout the southern portion of Texas. The last time I visited the Refuge I went in by boat. This time I intend to enter the Refuge by land. I hope to get some good photos of wildlife while I’m there. If I’m lucky, I will get some good photos of Whooping Cranes. Stay tuned.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III using my Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sports Lens set on 569mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/640th of a second and the ISO set at 100. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and finalized in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
