Cattle Egret in Mating Season
As I described in my Camera-Critters post that the Cattle Egrets change part of their color from white to yellow during the mating season in spring. I photographed this one in flight alone a river near Taipei. It was taken with my D300 and 80-400 mm VR lens. At the time, I just purchased the lens and have not yet had the D700. The shot was taken at 35 mm equivalent of 600 mm hand-held. For more technical detail: the lens was on VR; Exposure: spot metering, f5.6, 1/2000; Focus Mode: Continous; AF-Area Mode: Dynamic-area AF. How marvelous the modern technology is!!
