Male Great Egret soaking its feathers

Splish Splash Soaking

by Sange

Male Great Egret soaking its feathers. This Male Great Egret was soaking his feathers tonight in a light drizzle of rain. He is going through his changes from Breeding to Non breeding. They soak their feathers to relieve themselves of the itch and pinching feeling. It makes preening easier. The flat light was perfect for my new camera which handles low light superbly. All manual settings/handheld/Kelvin Scale for white balance control and Low light shooting.
