This Egret was taken in the evening at the Anhinga Trail in the Everglades, Florida. It was taken, on a tripod, with a Canon 20D and a 500mm f4 IS Canon lens. Tv mode, 1/100sec, f4, -1/3 exposure compensation, Canon 580EX flash, better beamer. The catfish were plentiful that day, and unlike other fish (which are gulped right down), the birds have to get the catfish positioned just right before swallowing them, making for great photo ops!
