as close as I can get

Egrets (les aigrettes) are extremely skittish and this is about as close as I have ever gotten to one.  And this was with a telephoto lens.  They are such beautiful birds though.  Maybe one day they will inspire me to plunk down serious money for a longer telephoto.


  1. Tu aurais plus de chances ici à Barneville, il y en a toujours dans le bras de mer qui longe la maison. Et elles sont tout près, pas besoin de matériel sophistiqué pour une jolie photo.

  2. It's even more frustrating with a dog in tow.
