[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An egret hunts in the late evening light for it's dinner. Moments like these are one in a million and capturing this low light image with a slow f 6.3 aperture lens at 500mm is no easy task! But knowing your equipment limitations and developing good anticipation skills pays off. Perhaps someday I will attempt this with a D3s at 6400 iso mounted with a 600 f4! Thanks for viewing and your comments.
