[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I photographed this snowy egret near Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Years ago NASA bought several thousands of acres of land from private owners to create the space center. Doing so has preserved a prime area for wildlife. Today Merritt Island Wildlife Preserve is an important habitat for migrating birds as well many mammals and other wildlife.

Hello John,
Welcome to TN!
You make a fine start with this excellent capture of a Snowy Egret, its pose and reflection in the water being the appeal of this shot. The sharpness and lighting are also great.
Well done and thanks for sharing this beauty.
Look forward to seeing more from you!

Hello John,

Welcome to TrekNature. You started with a fine image. The exposure on those whites is good and the reflection is wonderful. The simplicity of just the blue and white with a touch of yellow is very effective. Nice work.


Evelynn ; )

what a wonderful shot! :-) i only remember the rockets and space shuttle at the KSC, but not seing a pretty bird like this
one there.*g* i really like the contrast between the snow white plumage and the dark water, and of course the reflections on
the water are terrific. cool pose, good sharpness and well-handled exposure. great job & best wishes, thor.
