Wonderful shot! I love egrets! I always considered them good luck whenever I saw them. Love the moving water.

Exceptionally beautiful shot. I am really taken with this one. I have browsed through your portfolio whilst here and i am impressed by the quality and diversity of your work.

Nice find, and you got the exposure right to keep the detail in the white feathers. It takes practice to know the right EV setting to do that.
The water in motion makes an excellent dark background for this scene too.

This wows me. Not much on bird shots but you and another person have just wowed me with your shots. The contrast of the white against the dark water is beautiful. Such focus, texture and great detail in the water. Wonderful job! 9

Nice bubbles in the water, goes nicely with the egret, which is beautifully captured.
