This Snowy Egret dropped in right in front of me in some of the best light I've shot in a while. The bird started running around in front of me feeding and chasing fish in the shallows. If you have never seen this species hunt in shallow water it's something I hope you get to witness at some point. I really loved the darker background on this one and the mood and tones I thought worked really well together.
