Calm Snowy Egret

Calm Snowy Egret

Calm Snowy Egret – Nikon D200, handheld, f7.1, 1/1000, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 360mm, natural light

This image soothes me because of the still water, the relaxed pose of the Snowy Egret and the memories of how delightful it was to be on the north beach of Fort De Soto with my fellow photographer friends with the warmth of the rising sun on my back as I lay in the tidal mud next to this lagoon. Calm is the first thing I think of when I view this photo.

Who doesn’t need “calm” in their lives now and then? I know I do. Sometimes more than others.

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. Beautiful, calm, and soothing, Mia!
