Bird Pic Of The Week

Snowy Egret

(Egretta thula)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: This image was captured sitting with a small group of good friends at Chincoteague, one of our favorite places out on Virginia's Eastern Shore. When ever a school of fish came around the shallows, this little "Snowy" would take off in high speed pursuit. It would run and flare its wings, perhaps to direct the minnows with its shadow or maybe to slow and change its movement, like air-breaks. Then after a few minutes, the Egret would go back to slow stalking its prey, maybe giving itself a rest before the next burst of energetic fishing. Finally this bird pranced its way closer to our position along the road to Tom's Cove. The ample sun and exposure compensation allowed for a very fast shutter speed and plenty of depth of field. This was my favorite from that day, because I like the way its toes are on top of the water. This really helps to visually tell the story of this beauty's elegance and determination. This species and Reddish Egrets are the only birds I have ever seen perform this water dance.
