I wish I was old enough that I could say I saw a game at Ebbetts Field, but unfortunately.....they tore it down the year before I was born and the Dodgers were long gone from Brooklyn!

No you don't. Trust me on that. (This has nothing to do with baseball...)

Meanwhile, back to the photo: really like the full reflection of the bird in the water. That makes for a very interesting photo. That bird normally stays along the banks, and not in the water. That was a good job on your part to find a situation where there was water to capture the whole reflection. Well done.

I once got a shot of one of those egrets landing on the edge of a pond, and got a good reflection of the feet before they hit the water, but I don't have any with the whole body reflected, as he was headed for the bank, and the water ended just below the bottom of the frame.

We baseball fans aren't going to allow Steven to pull this thread back on topic, are we?

If you are a baseball fan and haven't seen this book, you should read it:

Cooperstown Confidential Heroes, Rogues, and the Inside Story of the Baseball Hall of Fame, by Zev Chafets

It's fascinating, starting with the fact that the HoF is a private, family owned (and arrogant) business not connected to the MLB operation or structure.

That is pretty cool - it looks like the egret is walking on water.

Nice shot Greg. well worth stopping for. White Heron or an egret? We don't get them up here

Comments on baseball edited out for fear of a fatwah being issued by the commisioner..
