Share Your Best Photo of the Day

Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

I love Snowny Egrets! They seen to be the easiest of the Herons and Egrets to get a good photo of. Plus they fluff up fairly often making them even more photogenic.

I usually have the best luck with Great Blues & Tricoloreds.  This egret was walking the runway!

Here are my most recent of a Snowy Egret and a Great Blue Heron. @floraphile Great Blue Heron are so tall I always have trouble getting them to fit in the frame. And Tri-colors I don't know what it is about them but photos of them generally don't turn out great either. I had one memorable photo shoot (bird cooperative and close) with one where I got good photos the rest I have just seem to be average at best. The ones a saw the same day as the photos below didn't cooperate at all for photos. I included a couple of the Tri photos from the memorable photo shoot mentioned and one of my average ones.

Personality wise Reddish Egrets are my favorite but photogenic Snowy Egrets hands down favorite. They come in a close second in personality.

I don’t see enough reddish egrets here to completely love them. The snowy egrets let me get very close to them.

Here’s my last photo before I leave 


Allen’s Hummingbird in the rain. 
 This was a very tricky shot, as it was very dark, overcast, and rainy. Lucky I got a sharp shot with such a slow shutter speed. I’m happy that you can see the rain in the background. 

Sorry, use this instead.https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/3959200912400?__hstc=264660688.c78b6d94735aa6e458

No words. Man those are amazing!!

Thanks! There been  some discussion among the local birders wondering about this bird as it seems exceptionally unafraid of humans, (doesn't fly off when you're eight feet away from it, and it doesn't seem nervous either) but it seems to be hunting just fine, and doesn't appear to be sick.
