Great Egret, Too

It’s hard to resist the temptation to play around with the egret images, even though they were natural abstractions as taken. This one is presented exactly as it came out of the camera, with added frame and words:

I wonder if words add another dimension to the image, just the way the framing seems to change the context of the picture.

And here’s a more traditional picture of the same great egret, the first ones I captured on a rather drab, grey morning:

Although it’s certainly more “realistic,? it seems to me to convey an entirely different impression of the egret.

  1. Although as a birder, the “realistic” photo has its appeal to me, so does the other one. There’s always some people who like chocolate AND vanilla! I’ve stalked many egrets around southeast Texas and I always find them interesting. Once one of them I’d been watching flew off not far above my head and that was a new experience–gave me a better sense of their wing-span!
