Hello - one day before Christmas-eve ...
The last weeks we had much snow - and just right for the Christmas-days it melted away ;-(
So I demonstrate against this unfairness with that white (snowy) bird ;-) White like snow - and looking so majestic - this guy realy gave me an audience for the shot ;-)
It's a Snowy Egret (Egretta thula).

Thanks for any words ...
Happy Christmas to you all, enjoy the holidays ...

Hi Sabine,
What a stunning photo of this impressive looking Egret. The contrast of the blue sky and the white bird is awesome. I love the super sharp details in the beak and head of the bird and love how the feathers came out so detailed. The eye is almost a bit scary.

Hello Sabine,
This is Very well exposed, with excellent sharpness, detail, POV and color. TFS

Lovable portrait of a Snowy Egret you shot in Egypt, Sabine.
It looks very cute and the expression in its eye is very calm.
A technically excellent capture with blue sky for background.
TFS and regards.

Hallo Sabine,
Das ist ein perfekte Porträt von Schnee fischreiher. Blauer Untergrund komponiert mit der weise Farbe des Vogels .Ich wette wenn man die Augen vergrößert hatte werden wir dich dort sehen können.
Schöne Grüße Siggi

A splendid close-up here from you!
The level of details on this close-up is absolutely impressive and the fact that despite the large DOF you managed expose is perfectly just goes to show what a great photographer you are.
Very beautiful composition, too as well as terrific blue BG.
Wonderful job!

Bravo, TFS and Happy Holidays!
