A Snowy, Fall Colors in the Spring

A rainy day at Jefferson Island with a Snowy Egret posing on a tree with fall colors in the Spring. The next week the tree was green.

Thanks Minnie, It as one of those rainy misty days that most people would past on day.

Startling detail, especially explosive against the dark background. Well done. Matt

Thanks Matt, It was grey wet day and this shot was just as the bird finish shacking off the rain from its feathers.

Steve, It was a light on and off mist and a rain coat on the gear with a big golf umbrella for me.

Those big golf umbrellas are amazing. If I could just figure out how to attach it to my body? A vest harness maybe? S-

Stupendous shot! Puts me in mind of an Audubon print.
