I revisited my spring photos for the Tagged F challenge and found this Great Egret in flight. This image was taken at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens in Charleston, South Carolina.
A walking path surrounds the extensive Audubon Swamp Garden, allowing for excellent views of the wildlife. On this day last spring we photographed the Great Egrets, a variety of herons, water birds, alligators, turtles and lizards without leaving the path or the boardwalk. It’s an amazing place to experience, especially in the spring, and I look forward to a return visit in March.
I’m in awe, simply stunning,keep up the great work.
Thank you so much! I will certainly try!
You are so fortunate to be able to visit this fabulous resort. Perhaps one day I’ll make it there.
It’s a great place to photograph and is open to the public for a small entrance fee, so if you’re ever down in that area it’s well worth a visit. I met several other nature photographers when I was there who stopped in for the day to shoot as I did.
This is great shot, I loved it, especially the colours of this flight with the background… you are amazing dear Tricia, Thank you, have a nice day, love, nia
Thank you for visiting, Nia, and for reblogging this photo! I’m so glad that you enjoyed it!
Amazing capture!!! usually it is very difficult to photograph wild life. In similar situation you my like, sometimes, to use panning technique so you can bring to life some of the motion of the flight.
Thank you for the comment! Yes, your reminder is a good one. I do forget that panning is a nice way to provide that feeling of movement. It might have been nice with this particular background, too, with the different colors.
Terrific flight shot of this egret in a beautiful setting! Well done!
Many thanks for your kind comment, Phil! Your bird photos are amazing!
I am fortunate to live close by and have visited many times. A must see in CHS area! Lovely shot
Thank you, Tina. Yes, I plan to return during spring break in a few weeks. I hope the egrets are still nesting at that point. I really enjoyed photographing them with all of the activity going on. Lots of territorial disputes and displays makes for fun photos!
