A tribute to my great friend, Judy Wanamaker, who often photographs snowy egrets in Florida. Judy was unable to be with our JPG gang this time and we miss her!
This shot was made at the St. Louis Zoo.

    Don, this is stunning! The lighting couldn't be more perfect, and neither could the poses these gorgeous birds gave you. I love it! A million thanks for this magnificent dedication. I miss you and all the others, but plan on attending other future meetups. Thanks for calling this morning; it really brightened my day, and put me in touch. I hope everyone has a fabulous day, and enjoys a safe and smooth journey home. Sending much love.

    A MAGNIFICENT capture Don, Love the light as it dapples the beautiful plumage, the beautiful shape formed by the front bird almost like she performing a beautiful ballet in contrast to the hunched indifferent pose of her mate. This is a magical piece of photography, BRAVO!! ....and perfect for Judy too..
