Right of Way

Right of Way

In a pond on the back side of Blackpoint Wildlife Drive on Merrett Island NWR a mixed group of waders (Egrets, Herons, Ibises [Ibi maybe]) were feeding avidly. It made for some interesting intersections as they worked actively back and forth across the water. I attempted several of these shots: two birds passing, and this was the best of them. Great Egret in the foreground. Little Blue Heron in the background.

Sony DSC N1 behind the eyepiece of a Zeiss Diascope 85FL. Equiv. total focal length (in 35mm terms) of around 2000mm. Camera exif: F5.6 @ 1/250th @ ISO 64. Programed Auto. Matrix focus.

Minimal processing in Lightroom. Clarity, Vibrance, Sharpen.
