An egret with it's own and the pinkish grass's reflection, taken a few weeks ago. As I'm looking at things now, I would probably have placed the egret a bit to the right of the pic, to give space in front of it, the direction it is walking.

It would be nice to here some comments on this aspect of "wildlife within landscapes", as opposed to close-cropped animals/birds only.

I agree but the centralized subject in this one is offset so much by the lovely pinks that I don't think it would be necessary. In fact, it might just provide a good reason to break that rule. The Egret is the hub of the surrounding color array.

Did you notice the illusion that the water is higher than the land behind it? It add's to the effect.

This is a beautiful shot Jake. The colors reflected in the water make for a very nice picture. Sorry I'm late looking in on it. So many things to do and not enough time.
