Hendry's Beach in Santa Barbara, CA, is a perfect spot to view wildlife, in and out of the water. Here an egret is about to go wading in search of fish--the bird is wary, intent, and concentrating on the task at hand. Technically, I wanted the bird to appear as a Part of nature and the landscape, not to stand out from it. Surrounding colors of earth, sea and sky are reflected in its plumage, rather than painting it stark white, the local color of these birds.
