I shot this "reddish egret" with the Nikon Z50. I am amazed at the image quality I am getting with this camera. It is lightweight and small and although it feel ergonomically like a Nikon, it can fit into a pocket, minus the lens. It is a cropped sensor, the Z6&7 are full frame. Any Nikon users thinking about a mirrorless should check it out. It's a gem!

Congratulations, Jane!! Wonderful capture.

One more knife in the back of the godfather from one of his capos as they win a FS while I get a 7+. LOL Could have just as easily been Mary Ann.

Well done! Is this your first blue in a fs? If so WTG, if not WTG anyways ;)

You nailed it Jane. Your tri-colored paid off. Great photo.

Awesome!! Might be a tad over sharpened, and I think you took the contrast down a bit too much (looks HDR'd instead of natural), and the fish belly is blown.

But that really doesn't matter much. Great catch!
