The Vampire Bird

Reddish Egret with vampire wings - Fort Desoto

This photograph was created with the Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM lens (Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM review), the Canon EOS 5D mark III, on a tripod mounted gimbal head. Have a look at the equipment I typically carry with me.

The photograph above is a Reddish Egret hunting for fish. This species likes to lift its wings up to create shaded areas in the water, which tends to make the fish nervous and allows the bird to see better through the water. In this instance, this Reddish-Egret is striking a very vampire like pose, with its wings almost perfectly symmetric. How do you like the effect?
