Hallo Friends,
This is the little Egret. I must tell you that I had a wonderful day among all the birds.
It is astonishing how this bird can chase a fish and nail it. Lovely to see it, and wonderful to capture it.
The image is not as sharp as I would like it, but the action make up for it.
For all the bird lovers out there, Enjoy
Best wishes

hello Jan,

You have done well with this action shot!
Lovely sharp image and some good details ... even to the droplets of water!
White is a particularly difficult colour to capture without overexposure occuring and you have coped well.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Jan, Very sharp, det is leeker. Great moment to capture. Very succesful bird, I see posts of them from all over the world. They must be doing something right.



Hello Jan,
What an excellent capture, the detail in this is just beautiful, stunning frozen action even down to the droplets of water, beautiful colours, exposure is spot-on as is the framing, very nice all the best Cheers Rick :)

Hi Jan,

Excellent capture for you aswell as the Egret.
You've done a great job on exposure wich is'nt easy whit all those white feathers.
Perfect composition and DOF and wonderful details.
Love the water drops hanging between the fish and the water surface.
A great joy to look at. TFS!!!

Best regards, Harry

Hello Jan,

Just marking,

Very good moment, Jan.
I like the 'golden fish'. Difficult to avoid completely the blown highlights. Well composed.
