… I love getting the shots that include the pre launch sequence of creatures with wings and the first second or two of flight. Once they launch they are at flying speed which in the case of a great egret like this is over 20 mph … almost instantly. … that translates into roughly 30 feet per second. By the time you get a two second sequence the bird will be 60 feet or more out from the limb or whatever it launched from. This egret just happened to fly while I was doing a short burst before flight … I got 30 plus shots before I quit shooting (about 2.3 seconds).
The lake is reflecting some low level trees protruding up from the water below him onto the lower part of his wings.
The -presentation at KSB went well tonight … lots of work putting them together, but worth every second once it starts and I am sharing the beauty I find in life and wherever in the natural world I find myself.
Back on Monday morning, or at least that is the plan. Have a beautiful rest of the week and seek beauty and the good in others. We find what we seek, so make it good.

In addition to sales of photographs already taken Ted does special shoots for patrons on request and also does air-to-air photography for those who want photographs of their airplanes in flight. All special photographic sessions are billed on an hourly basis.
Ted also does one-on-one workshops for those interested in learning the techniques he uses. By special arrangement Ted will do one-on-one aerial photography workshops which will include actual photo sessions in the air.
