Very nice....excellent picture.

You nailed it...very sharp, detail is wonderful and I love how you caught the delicate shading of the underside of the bird.

I've only seen one Cattle Egret in my life, in the extreme southwestern part of my province. Quite a sight for me.

Hi Ed,

A little late to the show, but your BIF Heron and Egret shots are definitely raising the bar and showing what a formidable combination the K-5 with the new Sigma 150-500 is for birding.

Great work!
