Little Egret with a 1D4
Sep 21, 2010

This is one of the more common water birds in our islands (Philippines). I'm always amazed how white birds like this can keep their plumage relatively clean even when foraging in mud flats or coastal areas every day. I used AI servo with expansion on all shots (off center point on first three, center point on BIF) to keep the active bird in focus at all times.

Little Egret ( Egretta garzetta )
