Great White Egret
Photographed on 05/15/07 over local lake

I used Manual Mode and set aperture at f5.6. I wanted to compensate for the bright white,
so I set shutter at 1/2000s. That gave me an EV of -1.3.

Aperture = f5.6
Shutter = 1/2000s
ISO = 400
Focal Length = 300mm
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens
