Snowy Egret



I took my new lens out to the Palo Alto Baylands to try it out and my favorite image was this duck, which I think is a female Northern Pintail. I was unpleasantly surprised about the number of mosquitos who were more than happy to turn me into their next meal. Next time I will bring insect repellant.

This image is technically flawed. I’ve lost the highlight detail on part of the egret.
I like the image anyway. Part of me says I shouldn’t post an image with such an obvious flaw but then I think it’s not a horrible flaw and only picky people like me will notice it anyway.
