This post is for World Bird WednesdayWe don't get a lot of fog on the Bay but when we do it is a magical place! However, I have always found it difficult to take photos that catch that magic- until one morning early this week. The fog was just as thick as other times but it was moving and shifting fast and there were places where the light was shining through.
Where the shafts of light hit an object it looked even brighter than normal because of the contrast.
A Grey Mangrove tree was festooned with white Egrets (Little Egrets I think).
A White-faced Heron flew up in front of me. It looked as insubstantial as the fog around it.
Extra: I showed a photo of two Double-banded Plovers in last week's post. On another trip out to Inskip Point a couple of days ago I saw two Double-banded Plovers getting that band of red across their front which is part of their breeding colors. It seems a little early to me as south New Zealand (where they breed) is still very cold - and likely to stay that way for a good few weeks yet!
