[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The movement of the neck to fish fingerlings running the egret is extremely fast and efficient. As seen in the photo the egret not close your eyes to be focused at all times to the dam. Likewise, the movement is very fast. It is already taking the fish out of water when you have not yet dropped the volume of water that the initial impact has been lifted. It's awesome.

Hello Roberto,
Amazing shot, captured at just the precise moment. Your super fast shutter has frozen the action perfectly and in wonderful detail. White balance is right on the money allowing the colors to be true and natural. Nice reflection also!!

hallo Roberto

Hello Robert,
Splendid photo with perfect focus. Excellent contrast and sharp details. I like the contrast of this interesting specie against the dark background.
