Snowy Egret – Moody Blues

Snowy Egret - Moody BluesSnowy Egret – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3, 1/1000, ISO 500, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural, low light

Yesterday I posted a Snowy Egret in flight in what many bird photographers would call good light and the image had wonderful dynamics because of the action of the bird.

This Snowy Egret image was taken just after the sun had risen above the horizon in about the same location as the egret image I posted yesterday but at a completely different time of the year, September of 2008.

This image conveys a very different mood but both Snowy Egret images have wonderful appeal for me.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.


  1. This bird is always exciting to see for me. I like that soft blue background.

    • Thanks Julie, I get even more excited now seeing them in Utah because there aren’t so many, they aren’t here all year and they aremore difficult to appraoch.

  2. Wow Mia, love this image, the gentle waves in the foreground are perfect. I can just hear the waves whispering. A very peaceful image.

  3. This is just beautiful! I love it!

  4. Great image, Mia. I love it.
