Great Egret 1

The first 4 shots are of the Great Egret, a large, beautiful white bird. The brightness of the white feathers creates a lot of difficulty in getting a good exposure, especially in the sunlight, and it is just so easy to blow out the feather's highlights. I used a Polarizing Filter most of the time, which helped some. This shot was taken with the Canon 100-400 at 400mm, ISO 100, f/5.6 and 1/320 second (hand-held).
