You've done well exposing this one accurately yet managing detail in the white plumage, Ed: Slimbridge has proved a happy hunting ground for you.

Now that is well sharp, Ed. The focal length seems to be sharper than when fully stretched to 500.
Excellent image.

Great capture Ed. All white birds like this are notoriously difficult to expose for. I reckon you have made a pretty good job here.SmileSmile

At the focal length used Ed this lens takes some beating for the price it is, exposed and composed beautifully.

This has got to be one of your best ever photos - I actually saw it in somebody else's portfolio
this morning and thought I haven't seen that one of ED's.
I love the beautiful white egret standing out so well against the dark twigs.
A very beautiful bird.
