This is a wonderful in flight shot.
You've nailed the bird very well.
Composition and exposure are excellent and the details in the feathers wonderful.
Very nice light and blue sky against wich the egret does stand out perfectly.
Only thing I would have added is USM in photoshop.
Not only that de bird becomes a bit sharper due to that, but details also will pop up even more beautifully than they are already.
Thanks for sharing.
Warm regards and have a nice sunday,
