As much as I try to be ready to capture shots of birds in flight that might chance to pass overhead when I am in wide open areas, or to adjust my settings to capture a small bird hiding in the shadows, sometimes the only thing I can do is click the shutter – and hope to capture whatever happens!
That’s what happened the other day when I spotted this Great Egret. I looked around and saw him standing on the railing, scratching his chin.
He flew right at me!! I wasn’t sure whether to duck or shoot – with my camera, of course 🙂
No way to correct my camera settings for the motion or the white highlights – or anything else. But I kept the photos anyway, just to remember the fun of the moment~!
