Snowy Egret – Viera Wetlands; Viera, Florida: On the west end of the Viera Wetlands I found this snowy egret searching for prey. Instead of walking through the water this snowy was leaping into the air and flying short distances then landing, perhaps to frighten fish into movement. The egret was very active and difficult to follow, but after a few attempts I got this shot as it left the water. A fast shutter speed, an f8 aperture and a 320 ISO made the image possible. Oh, the old adage, f8 and be there, still rings true!
