Celebrating the small joys in life and the decline of my 50 plus day cough, I captured this image of a Snowy Egret in flight over my backyard roost today in harsh midday sun. Shooting white birds is always challenging and requires a solid understanding of exposure. They reflect so much light feather details are lost if highlights are blown out. On a positive note for bird in flight photographers, a little cough seems to mean take wing in bird speak... All joking aside, prayers for all.

Godspeed~
