A Walk in The Pond

Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.

That is how I feel when photographing wildlife. I hope to get to the right spot before the birds fly off or the deer see me or the antelope sense that I am near.

Also since I have stopped wearing my blaze orange sweat shirt that has helped a great deal too.. ha ha ha ha silly me I thought animals were color blind. Too bad orange is my favorite color. DANG !!!

Enlarge to feel the wind on your face and hear the wind blow through the Snowy Egrets feathers.

Awesome. Snowy Egret having a bad hair day! =) This is really a fantastic capture. I love the ruffled feathers, obviously, but I especially like the rings in the water that also show motion. Fantastic catch!

You do take some amazing shots of the wildlife. I think your pictures belong in a magazine. Without your orange you should be able to sneak right in there!

It's a wonderful shot. You always do catch great moments. :) His crown looks fabulous in the sun. I hope you don't go where any hunters are if you're not wearing your vest!
