Great Egret Looking Great

Description: Believe it or not, this Great Egret ‘photo’ is a frame grab from a video. An 8K video to be precise. The extra pixels used by the 8K frame (7680×4320 pixels or about 33 megapixels) allow for still frames that rival still photos from even five years ago (depending on the camera, of course).

Location: Sepulveda Wildlife Area, Los Angeles, California, USA, North America

Camera: Canon R5 + 100-500mm L lens
