Egret, Wetlands, Pond. Ione, California. May 09, 2010. © Copyright Steven Tze – all rights reserved.
A little change up from the usual landscape photos today. It’s been my habit since I’ve started this photoblog over a month ago to go through my growing catalog of photos once an evening to select something I can talk about for the next day’s post. Sometimes it’s a photograph I just like, or one that I wish I had taken just a little differently, or some (like this one) I thought were pretty good back when I took it, but now I think are just average.
So, I’m not going to set the birding community on fire with this photograph, but I did think this picture of an egret was pretty darn good back in the day (last year!) mostly because the bird was in flight and it didn’t come out blurry. Yep, that’s about it!
I had taken a back road near my town during an spring storm with hopes of capturing storm clouds with scrub oak or grazing land. I did achieve that, but not too many of the photographs stood out, but that’s ok. At least I was out and shooting.
