‘Great White Egret Chasing Grey Heron’ by Bob Brown

It’s great to see Bob Brown back at the club and entering competitions again. I’ve really missed the seeing quality of his wildlife photography. This superb photograph of a great white egret chasing a grey heron is a fine example of the standard of his work. To take a photograph like this you not only need to know how to get the best out of your equipment, but also need to have the patience and timing to capture the picture. Judge Ian Stewart DPAGB ARPS awarded this photograph top marks in our second PDI Nature competition.
