Fuerteventura - Little Egret

Another bird that I saw quite frequently along the coast was the Little Egret. Similar in appearance to the Snowy Egret I had photographed in Florida earlier in the year, I often found individual birds slowly walking through rock pools and along the shoreline searching for food. They make good photographic subjects as they stand motionless waiting to strike at passing fish.

The harsh light in the middle of the day makes it quite tricky to photograph these majestic white birds.

On the final morning I managed to approach a Little Egret fishing in the waves. The early morning light makes all the difference! Little EgretLittle EgretCorrelajo, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands
