Discovered While Cleaning Up – Great Egret (Ardea alba)

Great Egret (Ardea alba)

Browsing through the photos of previous sessions and cleaning up my storage, I discovered this shot of a Great Egret (Ardea alba). Although the bird is walking away from me, I think the photo shows very well the elegance, grace of this bird. Thank you bird, for turning the head!

In this photo session, I experimented with shooting against the light, intending to create some sort of Origami where the bird is as dark as the vegetation. It didn’t worked out, though. Against my usual approach, I heavily edited the photo by lightening up the bird and darkening the water of the lake.

I like very much the result and I wanted to share it.

PS: Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t work at all as featured image with my WP template I am using. I fixed it with a cropped version.
