The other day I dropped in to Wakodahatchee Wetlands. The water level there and also in many other wetlands has been high, causing wading birds such as Egrets, Herons and Storks to change their nesting sites and feeding areas. The high water scatters their food sources and causes the birds some distress.

Here are a few images created with the E-M1 and the m75-300mm lens, all at ISO 400.

Rare Leucistic Female Common Grackle. 1/200, f/6.7, EV-0.3, 300mm.

This my first attempt at BIF with this camera/lens combo. The bird image is a bit soft as I was photographing some other birds and was set at S-AF.

Great White Egret in Breeding Plumsge with nesting material. 1/3200, f/5.4, EV-1.3, 124mm.

My second attempt at BIF and the same comments apply.

Great White Egret in Breeding Plumage with Stick for Nest. 1/3200, f/5.4, EV-1.3, 124mm.

Great White Egret in Breeding Plumage.1/2500, f/5.4, EV-1.3, 124mm
