Snowy Egret inflight OIH 2k8 1

Snowy Egret Egretta thula "bird in flight" (BIF) shot over the Oakland Middle Harbor park, in Oakland, CA sometime in ¿June? 2008. Taken by a Nikkormat FT2 with a Nikkor-H 300mm ƒ4.5 on Fujicolor Press 1600. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010, dust removal and gamma correction done in Paint Shop Pro Photo X2. Cropped heavily to square.

Those black lines are power/telephone wires between the photographer and the bird – the egret is not close to them…
The Egret is on final approach to a bay mudflat landing.
