Kat Warren : Departure
Departure – Getting a great shot is a combination of equipment, skill, and sometimes just being at the right place at the right time. This Great Egret sat calmly posing for me as we approached in a kayak, and just as we got into perfect range for my long lens, he or she decided we were close enough and took flight. The shots of the egret perched atop the weathered piling were nice, but the image of its departure was the one I loved the best. Luck is often a photographer’s best friend and greatest ally.
