Great egret - 1D X +300 f/2.8 IS II + 2x III, handheld - I yanked it off the tripod while shooting an owl and caught this bird in the first light of the day with the sun just above the horizon. An osprey with fish came a few minutes later but I wasn't fast enough! f/6.3 1/2000s ISO 3200:
Gorgeous light, and well controlled exposure.
