Great Egrets – St Augustine, Florida

The grace of Florida’s Great Egrets is simply amazing. While I was in Florida for the winter art fairs I had time to spend in St Augustine, the oldest city in the United States. The rookery where I spent most of the week was wonderful and allowed me to enjoy the spring nesting rituals of the Great Egrets and several other Florida birds.

This nesting pair of Great Egrets reminded me of an oriental painting. By using the Canvas setting in the Texture pallet in the Filter Gallery of Photoshop CS6 I was able to give this image the feel of an Oriental Painting.
 


Life is a dance – Great Egrets mating dance

Last week I spent time photographing birds and the photographic techniques necessary to capture them in flight. Fortunately I had spent some time years ago photographing children who move even faster than birds in flight. I captured a quite a few nice images but there were one or two that were different than the normal birding images and stood out from the others.
