I was headed to town this morning to see an aunt in the hospital and spotted this egret in the water beside the highway. I always have my camera with me so I turned around and headed back. Then stopped, eased out of the truck and started snapping away while slowly moving closer. I got quite a few before he took to the air.

Beautiful shot, Houston, exposure is perfect, reflection is heavenly, colors dynamic, contrast great, crop excellent. As well, it sounds like your stalking methodology is getting real good too, slow, meticulous, quiet.

Pretty fine stuff Houston.
