On Egret Fish and Fly in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, Philip Lanoue, on yet another fantastic capture of birdlife in spectacular style. The pure whiteness of the egret is the first thing I notice, then the amazing and graceful wingspan as it flies through the dark marshes, and lastly I'm aware of the small fish the egret has caught and is taking it home for dinner. A well-deserved second place in the challenge. Philip, you must have webbed feet by now! Ruth :-)

It would be best if they switched over to video for that one!

Hey, thanks very much Ruth! I'm happy you liked this egret flight with fish!
I'm trying to keep me feet dry, almost didn't today chasing a wild mink around the marsh. :-)
Cheers,
Phil

On Cattle Egret in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

Cool flight shot but I believe that is either a snowy egret or a juvenile little blue heron and not a cattle egret.
Best,
Phil

Thanks Mick! We should all have this guy's life. He's at the top of the food chain out there and has few worries.
See ya,

On Tricolored Heron in Quiet Reflection in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (27 comments in total)
In reply to:

rmbackus: I guess PhotoShopped ? The water has not a completely calm surface to reflect the trees in focus. On the other hand, the bird's reflection is razor sharp.

Well I do appreciate your interest. And as I stated previously, feel free to check to check out my blog phillanoue.com or even my gallery here and you will see I take a photojournalistic approach to wildlife photography. All photos are shown as the action really happened. That's a strict policy with me. I have never made a composite or other totally manipulated image in my life. I don't even know how to do that. I also never influence or interfere with any of the wildlife I photograph. Everything would have happened just as you see whether I was there or not.
Sorry for the long winded reply, probably more info then anyone needed. Anyway thanks again for looking and commenting.

In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, Philip Lanoue, on coming first in this weekly challenge, with this beautiful and peaceful capture of a tri-coloured heron. The colours of the heron reflected in the clear water are perfect, with light greys and whites above and deeper shades below. I really like the deep blues and charcoal black/ greys in the water, which I guess are reflected from the early evening sky. A picture you will be proud of, I'm sure. Ruth :-)

Thank you very much Ruth, I'm very happy you liked his Tri shot!
Too bad a couple people think I Photoshopped this somehow.
They only need to check out my blog phillanoue.com to see what I do every day.

Nope, the image is 100% legit, no Photoshop gimmick or anything. What is you see is very close to how it looked right out of the camera. Just some very minor typical adjustments. I took over 20 similar frames while this bird was standing there including a couple where he fluffed up and looked like he exploded.
