Here's another photo from the same location as the previous two posts of the pelican. This great egret was actually there first, but the pelicans ran him off pretty quickly. When I first came to this location I noticed there was a palm tree overhead, which caused some dappled light. And whenever I run into that, it never fails that the shadows and highlights fall exactly where I don't want them. In this case, however, the highlight fell right across the egret's head and shoulders. No flash or Photoshop here. This is all natural light. I also thought it was a bit early for the egret to have breeding plumage, and with the wind that day, it added a little visual kick at the bottom. Nikon D200, 200mm, 1/4000 sec at f/4.
