I hate windy days too...what it does to a girls hair or feathers! :-)
The wind really added an extra special dimention to your image Cathy!
Great exposure on the whites!

Debby, Janine, Joannie, Lisa and Jeff,
Thanks for all of the nice comments! I'm so glad this photo seems to be a hit. I was all excited when I got a photo of this snowy egret along with a spoonbill next to each other in the same bush. But when I downloaded the photo the spoonbill, which was lying down, just didn't seem to work in the photo so I cropped the photo and removed the part of the spoonbill that was still in the bottom right corner. I'm going to try to attach the original photo. I would appreciate feedback if anyone has an opinion about whether I could create an equally good or better photo with the spoonbill in it.
Thanks,
Cathy

Nice shot. I like the way the wind is blowing the feathers. Good luck in the next round.

Hi Cathy...Congrats on another Finalist award! This is a great photo, and your recognition is well deserved.

I haven't been all that active with photography lately, but with the spring weather (slowly) approaching here in the northeast, I will be coming out from my photographic hibernation soon.

Continued success!
