Description:

Rookeries can be superb locations to shoot because you are guaranteed certain predictable consistent behavior such as this. Here a Great Egret in beautiful breeding colors is returning with a twig complete with Spanish moss to its mate high up in a nest. Stay away from these locations when the light is harsh, cloudy weather is preferred; here a white subject (with fill flash) against a light colored sky creates a classic high key style image.
