A Cattle Egret hiding in the grass just after the storm that passed in my previous image.
You can see this bird quite a bit in Israel at the moment especially next to the temporary bodies of water that have appeared this winter.I even noticed a large group near Meggido (Ramat Menashe) living up to their name with a group of cows amongst the trees.

bonjour David,

superbe image , très belle netteté et couleurs superbement bien cadrée bravo


Hi Dave,
The Egret looks very nice with all this green around it. Seems like spring time.
Very good details and the color contrast is excellent.

Hi David

It is great to see this kind of peaceful shots from lovely Erets Yisrael. The lush vegetation provides this bird with an excellent backdrop to highlight its beauty and to enhance its pure white plumage. The scenario is well sprinkled with a number of lovely white flowers and the obvious after effects of the life giving rains. The composition is superb, the colours are well saturated, the details are great, and the exposure was spot-on.

Good work and TFS.

hehe, he tried to hide, but you got him alright, david! :-)
excellent composition of the beautiful white
egret in between the high green grass.
i hope i will see some of those, too, in 2 weeks. *g*
well done & take care, thorsten.

bonjour David,
une belle image dans le milieu naturel, le cadrage est excellent et le contraste des couleurs saisissant.


Hello David,
You had a great timing to see this beautiful bird hidden like this. I like this POV, composition and beautiful environment with those nice flowers. The bird contrast very well on this green color. This is well seen and well done with nice details and exposure. Thanks,
