Great Egret

November 21, 2021

I seldom visit Cape Sable Island or Brier Island these days. The time and expense involved is seldom worth the results. It is also environmentally irresponsible to be blowing hydro carbons into our air for a bird photo or two. Birders in general do not share this ethic.

I found the Snowy and Great Egrets on Cape Sable Island almost immediately but they were perched in a tree and useful photographs were not to be had. I was compelled to hand hold my camera at 1200mm just to get these photos of the Great Egret, photographs that pale in comparison to ones I have already. So my ethical concern was justified.
