On January 11, 2017, once again, I returned to the Wacissa River with our two seat kayak. The Wacissa River is located east, southeast of Tallahassee, Florida about 25 miles or so. Regrettably, Deb could not be with me on this trip since it was on a weekday. As I paddled around the large area not too far from the entrance this beautiful Snowy Egret (scientific name is egretta thula) was rushing around the shallow water fishing. Naturally, I slowly paddled as close as I dared into some water lettuce to still the kayak so there would be as little movement as possible as I started photographing this snowy. I suppose the snowies do not like to get their wings wet or perhaps they can simply move faster through the water with their wings held high. Regardless of why they do it we have noticed most of them seem to hold their wings above their head when they rush around trying to catch fish, which, of course, makes for great photographs if one is lucky enough to freeze the action blur free. One of the things I like so much about this particular image is I was able to freeze the water action as the snowy pulled the fish out of the water with its beak. As you may have noticed this is not a plain photograph. I decided to use a digital oil brush on a copy of the original image to see the results. Of course, it took considerable time to get it just so so but I am pleased with the final results, which means we now have a photo-painting rather than simply a photograph. I'll probably post the "stand-alone" photograph later. All visits to our FAA-Pixels art sites are welcomed, encouraged and appreciated. Please visit often and, if you will, tell your family and friends about our art sites. They may find something they like and thank you for the tip. Thank you for visiting. Bill & Deb Hayes
