[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this snowy egret just caught a little fish, take a look near the tip of the beak. it plunged its beak into the water and then swung its head out in a sweeping motion, see the trail of water droplets.

Bonne journée.

Hi Tom

Great composition - the sharpness and exposure on the bird are excellent and the reflection is an added bonus.




Nice contrast. I love the way the eye looks.

Nice!!! You captured the white very well...Great action photo caught at just the right moment...Rippled reflection looks really good...TFS

Now here you captured the whites so well. Obviously you are in control of your white balance. This is something which in B&W I was not too worried about. Now I am a learner again at an older age, but striving..

So sharp, I could touch it! This bird is incredible!
Great shot!

Hello Tom, :)

Such a beautiful sharp capture of this Snowy having lunch! Very well composed, with a perfect POV. Nice colours and a great balance of his white feathers. Thanks for sharing!

Hola Tom. Nice Photo! Grate moment you have catched here. I like the colors. It is very hard to have a decent photo in white featers. You just made it. Luis52.

I like the diagonal lines of the composition. Beautiful reflection and action.

Hello Tom,
Just at the right time, the click of your camera! Excellent management of the white.Well sen.
Thank's and best regards

Magnifique photo, quels détails et la couleur de l'eau est superbe.

Dear Tom,
I like the way you caught the split second moment when the egret takes the fish out of the water. The light, the framing, sharpness all is perfect. Well done Tom!
Best regards,
