It was a very dark, rainy and overcast day at the refuge. While most people had left, I decided to stay a while to see if the ominous conditions would present some good opportunities for flat light, which can be just the ticket for birds with white feathers. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed this great egret standing on a log with beautiful light cast on it. It started to rain, but the bird did not seem to mind, nor did it seem to mind me with my camera lens fixed right on it.
