This is a rework/resubmit of one of the first baby Egret photos I submitted, about a year ago. I originally used "Auto Contrast" which works much better than "Auto Levels" on nature shots, but still "blew out" the "hair" on this little guy. I used less Contrast and some Brightness to get a more natural shot.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/5000 seconds, Flash: did not fire., White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 300.00 mm, Model: NIKON D70s
