Description

Commonwealth Lake Park in the City of Beaverton is just over 4 miles from our home. A small lake that is well stocked with fish, it attracts migrating birds, especially in the winter. Walking the .8 mile perimeter I spotted a great Egret in one of the adjacent canals. Hand-held using my Nikon D 7100 and Sigma Zoom Lens (150-200 mm.) I caught this magnificent bird taking off. The ISO was 2000, F/7.1, 1/8000th second exposure, and a Focal Length of 150 mm.
