Portrait of a Snowy Egret

This Snowy Egret was an extremely cooperative subject.  He sat very still showing his best side and in great light.  It's very difficult to get the proper exposure with these birds, especially when the background is so much darker so the extra time was greatly appreciated.  The image was made in Mt Dora on the Palm Island Boardwalk.  This is a great place to go for a variety of birds although parts of the boardwalk have fallen into disrepair.  Lake County generally does a great job maintaining facilities such as Palm Island but for whatever reason this one continues to deteriorate.  It's still a great place to go.
