Each spring, many nesting pairs of Great Egrets gather at Kraft Azalea Garden in Central Florida, United States to begin their nesting rituals. I was inspired to share with the world the beauty of the Great Egrets. I made countless trips to the location in order to capture the most beautiful moments. Their true beauty is best reflected with their natural living environment. I wanted to fully utilize their enchanting surroundings to better obtain unique compositions. I carefully selected the camera positions and patiently waited for the best opportunities. During post-processing for some of these photos, I selected the sky to make it darker, and then I painted the light using the soft-brush tool to create a more dreamy and artistic impression.
