All Shook Up

While taking some shots of this Snowy Egret in the top of the Mangrove bush, he decided he had an itch he could not reach…and attempted to shake it out. I saw it happening, was prefocused and ready, and the Zeiss PhotoScope 85FL caught it. Bang.

Zeiss PhotoScope 85FL at about 1400mm equivalent feild of view. 1/750th @ ISO 100. Metered at about f5.6.

Added Clarity and Vibrance in Lightroom. A touch of Fill Light and Blackpoint slightly right. Because I had some sky reflection in the shadows of the white features, I used the selective Satruation control to reduce saturation only of the particular shade of blue there.
