Wasn’t long ago I was chasing around the red tail hawk , searching for a perfect shot . Then he seemed to disappear and as the warm weather came , he was difficult to find in the trees . So recently I’ve taken up shooting one of the egrets in Central Park . He’s a beautiful bird , but being so white getting details in his feathers is very difficult . But , if your into photography and using manual settings , he will truly taste you skills and patience . 

So I’ll share a few shots of this guy .

      1. Very true, in my spare time I work in a nature reservation (www.kevie.be). I recently bought a decent camera that I took to Australia. Made some very nice photos. But I am not even close to call myself a photographer :). For our business I take pictures as well, but still learning.

        I will follow your blog as well, so I will learn 🙂

      2. Ahhh .. thank you so much . I love photoing , and would love to be out photoing everyday and pretty much am .. lol . Most of the time I’ll be in NYC shooting models , but when I’m not , nothing better then sitting next to this little pond taking photos of nature . This egret is just beautiful and if you look deeper in my photos you will see the hawk I was chasing around . It’s relaxing as well as practicing my photography when I’m shooting nature , everyday learning .
        But days like this it’s more about taking the time to use and learn different settings and what works best in light , shade etc . 🙂

    1. Thank you very much , it’s nice to hear . Just trying to keep it interesting , but I’ve been slow to post anything here recently .

      Egypt is a place I would love to photo someday , working my way up to be a traveling photographer and to be paid for it 😂 .

  2. This is amazing…. gorgeous photos. The way you shared these have a way of speaking so loudly about how passionate you are for your work. Thank you for sharing!

  3. This is the most amazing post I have seen in a long time. The captures of the egrets are beyond beautiful, Steve. I’ll see if I can find you on Instagram. 😉 Do you think that Instagram is more rewarding for you as a photographer?
    Kind regards from Norway,

    1. Hmmm rewarding ? Not really , because I’m more serious about my photography and that’s just social media . But , I get more likes there then anyplace else so I post there to share my work . :))

      1. Fair enough! 🙂 I’ve been blogging for several years and only recently started posting photos on Instagram, urged by a photographer. Have a wonderful day!

      2. I’m the opposite , posting photos , someone said to try posting photos in a blog . Unfortunately I’m not much for writing . 😔 how about I photo and you can write 😂 😜

    1. I use a canon 7d mark II . Settings hmmmm I don’t remember 😂 I was using a sigma 150-600 , so it shoots very dark, because the aperture is 5.6 and I try to have shutter at 1250 when I’m shooting birds . Which means with this lens my ISO is about 1250 as well . I hate having ISO so high , but , need a quick shutter to catch the movement .

      1. I’m not so good at remembering , but looked that up . Do you do photography ? Feel free to find me in instagram / fb / Flickr , it’s where I post most of my photos 🙂

    1. I use a canon 7D , yea, I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many photos I even have of him at this point . 1,000s. But now he left so the challenge begins again with a blue heron that moved in .
