April 12th, 2013 – Avian Friday: White Ninja

During a past visit to Bolsa Chica Wetlands I spent a little time observing this little Snowy Egret. I assumed he was a youngster because he wasn’t having much success hunting for baitfish at the tide gate to the reserve. I had posted another shot from this sequence previously, but I think the processing on this one is an improvement.

  1. As always I am way behind on my friends blog posts but in this case I am sort of glad I am. I decided to check a few out before heading to bed tonight and what a great treat to find this as the last image I enjoy for the evening. Absolutely gorgeous shot.
