Delightful capture of an Egret with a catch it its beak, neigbour Goldy!
Despite low light conditions, you have managed a very attractive shot and the white balance is just right.

Hello Goldy,
Nice moment in good timing. The absence of sunlight works in your advantage, mostly the feathers of these egrets are over-exposed. Fine sharpness and a good composition.

Bopnsoir Goldy,
Un angle de prise de vue pour le moins original qui produit cependant une agréable publication.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Great action shot!!! Don't you love the timing of nature, especially when you are carrying a camera at the time!!

Hello Goldy,
Nice to see you back! Yes,the light was quite poor but I see what has interested you in this scene. I suppose that the fish disapeared quickly in the bird's beak after your shot. Take care!

Hi Goldy,
Nice action shot with a very good moment captured.
Good natural colours and details.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Goldy

Excellent shot of this wader bird with his catch, looking to the photo
we can feel his joy of this catch, shot with fine POV from behind and
the appropriate vertical framing giving another kind of composition, TFS
