I enjoyed a quick visit to Hinckley Lake this morning and followed a Great Egret as it moved from one fishing spot to another. Happily, I was able to capture a flight sequence that included this shot. Cloudy skies helped by softening the light … the Great Egrets are brilliant white in direct sunlight and, with a dark background, can be difficult to image. Also seen at the lake this day was one Great Blue Heron and, to my surprise, a Bald Eagle. The eagle, already high in the sky, was circling ever higher as I watched. I grabbed a few shots while the bird with still within reach of my lens and even at that, had to crop tightly to achieve the image seen below. It was a good morning.
