  1. Oh. My. God! Is this picture stunning! Frame it and mount it, as it belongs on a prominently positioned wall in your home.

    I’ve posted my WW contribution here:

    Nowhere near as stunning as this, but I hope you’ll pop by all the same.

    All the best,


  2. The blue in the water is breathtaking.

    Aren’t so lucky to have the technology to capture these wonderful creatures.

    Come see a cousin of your friend… 🙂


  3. Awesome shot! How long did you need to ‘camp’ there to capture a shot like this? I was trying to catch a few shots of crabs along the shoreline the other day and in order for me to get close to them, less than a metre, I had to squat down motionless for at least 5 minutes or more. But too bad, I only had my Sony Ericsson camera phone and thus the shot did not turn out well.

  4. I really like this shot. Looks like you just caught him sneaking out.

    To answer your question, I can’t tell you how I actually get the water to look like that. I just take the shots. 🙂 I’m just learning to play with the manual settings when I have time to stand there and do it. But when I play with the shutter speeds I’ve learned it affects how much light I have so I have to play with more than one setting. I say just play with your settings. The more you do it the more you’ll learn exactly what they do.

  5. Hey there BK – I didn’t camp, really. It was a tour boat from Tarpon Bay Explorers on Sanibel Island, Florida. The boat stopped near a clump of mangroves so we could observe the egret. It was the first time I’ve seen a reddish – I dunno, they must be shy or maybe I’ve just never been in the right place at the right time. Anyhow, I did have to wait some for her to come out of the shadows of the mangrove, but the boat captain was kinds and in no hurry 😉

  6. cool pic, we have blue herons here and I try to get good pics of them but I always forget my camera when there is a really good shot.
