It's been cloudy outside, experimenting,loved the effects and just wanted to share. Will add the other b/w form in workshop

Love our marsh birds, Egrets just fascinates me with his bright orange beak. Hoping to get a great close up this week. He has been hanging out in the backyard!

The great egret is the symbol of the National Audubon Society and represents a conservation success story. The snowy white bird's beautiful plumage made it far too popular in 19th-century North America. Great egrets were decimated by plume hunters who supplied purveyors of the latest ladies' fashions. Their populations plunged by some 95 percent. Today the outlook is much brighter. The birds have enjoyed legal protection over the last century, and their numbers have increased substantially.
