The Longest Neck by AuntDot

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/1000s, f/5.6, ISO 200, focal length 39.3mm (35 mm equivalent 228mm); AUTO setting

I couldn’t resist cropping this photo of a Great Egret to show just its neck and head. It’s such a long neck! (Same bird as previous post, Great Egret At Pond’s Edge) Taken in Tuscawilla Park, Ocala, Florida, U.S.A.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
