Snowy Egret photographed in Santa Cruz, California. Always a joy to observe and photograph these interesting birds. Nice side-light on this one, which is my favorite use of sunlight. 

NIKON COOLPIX P610 116 mm, f/8, 1/640 sec., ISO 100

A fine profile study enhanced by your signature side lighting, Tony. Beautifully done!

Tony, lovely profile study, the wispy long feathers below chest add further against the dark BG.  Interesting the way the highlighted part of perch stands out and the the shaded part just disappears, abstract and mysterious.

A striking image of the Snowy Egret, Tony. The sidelight in combination with the dark background make a dramatic image. Very artistic presentation.
