Cattle Egret
Photographed bySiham on Sun 20th Aug, 2017 and uploaded on same date.
CommentI took this picture at the Melbourne zoo yesterday. It was the first time I was using the Aperture priority mode, although I had a couple of nice shots of the spoonbill ( posted in the new images gallery) I found it difficult to have a sharp picture with those guys. As suggested by Ian in a previous picture I posted in this gallery I tried to keep the background clean and the perch is not too big.
I like it even if it's blurry, what do you think?
