[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Snowy White Egrets abound at the Arrowhead Golf Course, I think I was driving them crazy following them around clicking away at them! They are so beautiful. Pretty big birds too! Actually have some out front of my house here in Canada but have never been able to get this close to them.
PP work just framing and resizing

bonjour Donna,
c'est un très beau spécimen, vous avez deplus réalisé une belle composition.
Je vous propose modetement un petit workshop, je pense que cela va vous plaire.


Hola Donna
Una Garceta grande muy bonita, si me permites un consejo deja cuando puedas un poco de espacio hacia donde anda la garza y la composición ganará mucho.
Un gran documento y de una especie nada fácil de fotografiar.
Un saludo

Hi Donna,
Superb shot,Very good colours, sharp, details, framing and light.Composition are excellent.Regards.


Hi Donna,
What a beautiful photo of a beautiful bird. That is the advantage of animals at a golf course, they are so used to people that they are in comfortable. I think that there are even a few courses in Florida that have a major problem with alligators. Good sharpness and excellent control over the exposure.

Hi Donna,
Nicely capturing this pure white egret. Perfect exposure settings. I, myself, always worry about OE every time I shoot a white object, but you did great! Nice natural colors. Crisp water surface, nice reflection. Very well done.

Hi Donna,
I find this is one of the hardest birds to photograph, but you did very well capturing this beauty. Great exposure, you avoided over exposure which happen a lot with this pure white bird. POV, details and colors are great.
Very well done.

Hello Donna,
Yes you are right, they are majestic birds!
Hopefull they have a future outside sanctuaries too, but I have a feeling I see less migratory big birds by the year...
Good details here, plumage are well captured!
Maybe I'd like to see the bird more to the left side of the frame, but no big deal...
