A Snowy Egret (Egretta Thula) hunting for breakfast in the shallow water of 40 Acre Lake at Brazos Bend State Park, Texas, USA.

Here is another attempt to get a photograph with minimal editing to beat my highest 12th place so far. Plus it would be cool to see a minimally edited wildlife photo on the front page in the Extended Free Study.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes to the open challenge well

Great nature study Ronnie. I like the way you have captured the bird in mid stripe with his yellow foot vividly contracted against the green background. There is a lovely level of detail in the bird with his beautiful white plumage again nicely contrasted against the dark background. I find the brown on the left a little distracting but not a lot you could probably do about that, other than that well done Ronnie for climbing another rung of the ladder towards your goal
