Great Egret

Recommended Posts

Wish I could have gotten closer, but the mud was getting the better of me. Beautiful bird is the Great Egret. The white just blows out and these were taken on a cloudy day!

Mike the shots are very nice but if you would pull them into Photoshop and fix the whites I think your shots would be great. I took your first one and worked with the whites and was able to get out the detail in the wings.You should be able to get a better picture using the original.

Thanks all, Jim I'll try that. I'm still pretty weak in Photoshop but I learn a little more each week.

Don't be afraid to try stuff in Photoshop. The only thing to remember is to save it as a copy so you will always have the original to go back to some other day as your skills get better. I have been able to go back to shots I took years ago and fix my mistakes. Heck I am still making them and fixing them today grin

I am not sure what version you have but Scott Kelby has a book for just about everyone with easy to follow instructions on how to do almost everything.

The last image is serene and lovely, I enjoy the lush surroundings and the calm water.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
