Soaring in the Rain


Something special about egrets for that I have not gotten tired of taking their pictures. I like their slender and tall silhouette and the snow feather.  When they stand up, they look like an elegant prince or princess. When they puff up their feather, they look like naughty kiddos. When they find their prey, they are like aggressive fishermen. Among all, I am loving this one.

The bird is in its perfect flying position with the head going straight forward and the wings wide open. The peak, head, and neck form a nice sculpture while the wings portrait motion. I wish I was quick and skilled enough to set up my camera and capture ‘two birds with one stone (one snap, two subjects). How do I illustrate what I saw and what I had in mind? This is when the texture comes to play. Texture helps me to get my point across, to tell a story.
