Cattle Egret in flight…

Cattle Egret, St Augustine Alligator Farm wild bird rookery, Florida

Great Egrets, Wood Storks, Roseate Spoonbills, while not easy, are easier to catch in flight at the St Augustine Alligator Farm wild bird rookery in St Augustine Florida than Cattle Egrets and Snowy Egrets. The smaller egrets move faster, and are, well, smaller so there is less for the focus to lock on to. Still, with the Sony RX10iv and its hybrid focus, I managed a few shots of both Snowy and Cattle Egrets in flight this year. This one, of a Cattle Egret with nesting material is an example. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode with BIF modifications. 1/1000th @ f4 @ ISO 200. Processed in Polarr.
