|Egret at Night|
February 16, 2012. Egret at Night.
Taken just outside the Castillo de San Marcos park boundaries along with waterfront in Saint Augustine, Florida. A lone egret fishes along the retaining wall late at night.
This long-exposure shot was taken in the pitch black, using the retaining wall by the water to keep the camera steady. Thankfully, I got 8 seconds of the bird staring at a fish! Not a second after the shutter closed on this shot, a Rodent of Unusual Size scurried along the seawall, almost running up my arm.
Leica X1. 24.0 mm. 8 seconds. f/8.0. ISO 1600. LR 2.
