Hard to get a great exposure of the egret's white feathers without turning everything black around it.

I also captured a couple of amazing shots of its strike at it spotted and stabbed at the fish.

Hello Alan,
This is the type of shot I dream about capturing, a heron with a fish in its bill. Perfect timing to get just the right moment and then it has to be in focus, you did it all. As far as exposure on white plumages like this, I have the exact same problem. You managed very well and even got a great reflection in the water.

Hello Alan,
Excellent exposure in such White! I like its reflection too n cristal clear water. Well focused and good DOF. Could have been more attractive if fish was well in focus.
Thanks for showing,
Regards and have a nice Week,
