Attention to Detail. SILVER AWARD WINNER.

Little Egret – Egretta garzetta. Pusztaszer, Hungary. Photographer: Csaba Tökölyi, Hungary. Category: Attention to Detail. SILVER AWARD WINNER. Photographer’s Story: ‘It had been a long night, lodged in a hide set up for nocturnal species. After those long dark hours packed with action photography the breaking dawn presented a real treat. A Little Egret in wonderful breeding plumage stopped by and was standing at close range in the golden light of dawn reflected on the water’s surface. The elongated scapular feathers covered the bird like a gown in the lovely morning light. Instead of using wide-angle, I looked for a composition with my telephoto lens to try to record a different kind of image.’ Nikon D7200 with Nikon 300mm f/2.8 AF-S VR lens. 300mm focal length; 1/640 second; f/7.1; ISO 1,600. Tripod. Water-level hide.
