Great Egret

I wasn't too thrilled with a cheap 500 mm lens I bought a while back.  After playing with it a bit, I find it does take OK pictures, but it needs a lot of light...I took this great egret standing on the post of a dock and was close enough to need two shots stitched together to get it all in.

I would have needed three shots if it had straightened out its neck! It almost looks like a pretzel in the second shot.

Here's a closer look at the neck & face

why is no one raving about these photographs?
these are fantastic. I've scrolled back and found all these wonderful colours.
