[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know, that this picture is not great. I have a lot of good pictures related to pyramids, valley of the kings and others. Being in Egypt I hadn't thought about nature photos (I wasn't a member of TN). It has done in Red Sea in Hurghada (it's a wildlife - it's for one of moderators). Many thanks to Maurizio (maurydv) for ID!!!

Ciao Maciej.
Mi spiace ma non posso aiutarti ha riconosciere questo uccello.
Ma la foto everamente bella che mostra la grande apertura alare ai questo uccello. belli i colori e ottima la nitidrzza.
Ciao Marco.

Hallo Marciej,
i think about the ID that this bird is the Little Egret (Egretta garzetta); a superb capture taken from an excellent POV with great timing, very good sharpness and bright colours, a very beautiful composition with a nice posture
Best regards

Hello Maciej,
excellent composition of the bird. Lively pose and the view is pleasant especially the full spread wings. The water is lively too with golden ripples in good lighting.
I like the composition, well seen feature.


Hello Maciej,
Who says pic is not great! Amazing timing & capture of the moment with beautiful large wing span of the little egret within the frame of reference with best luminosity.
Regards Subhash
