The Snowy Egret in flight at Lake Estes. Yellow lores, yellow feet, black legs and lacy plumes confirm this as a Snowy Egret. The white bird against a white cloud created an opportunity to process this image as a High Key image. 04/25/16 2:32PM. Canon EOS 5DmkIII, Canon EF400mm. f/5.6L USM, 1/8000s@f/5.6, ISO 400, lens focal length 400mm.

I'm really pleased to have the Estes Park News publish my Snowy Egret image on the front page of the 4/29/16 edition. Much appreciated.

A beautiful moment in flight. You were in my top two picks, surprised this didn't score a way lot higher, that seems to be DPC these days.
