Wow what a fantastic shot! Never seen their feathers quite in that way. Beautiful.

Hi Zig.

Great composition and exposure, to show us the beautiful details of this Great Egret.

I like the photo - as it really shines allowing those long feathers to 'have their place' in the composition.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

Excellent shot Zig. You must be on your annual trip down here in Florida.

Good morning all,

Thank you all for the kind words.

And yes, Steven, I'm in Marco Island. Although, it was taken at the Rookery in Venice.
