My 1000th post was long and contained many images so for my 1001st post I am keeping it simple with a Snowy Egret resting near the mangroves of the north beach at Fort De Soto. I liked the dark background which contrasts nicely with the white plumage of the egret and its yellow lores and feet. I could have darkened the background for more drama; and some photographers would, but that really would not represent how it actually looked when I took this image. I like to keep my post processing to the minimum.
That spikey “do” is something else!
