Hello Michel,
Great inflight shot of this beautiful Egret. Excellent white balance and nice sharp focus. I too have noticed an abundance of Great Egrets while up at Lake Erie this year.


Nice shot ... coasting in for a landing! I might have cropped a bit tighter above and to left to enhance the details of the egret, but nice management of POV and true colors.

TFS ... well done!


Ciao Michel, fantastic in-flight capture, perfect focus on lovely Little Egret, excellent sharpness, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

A pinnacle in wildlife photography if I may say, Michel in terms of focus precision, depth and clarity. Not sure about composition, although this seems to be a difficult image to compose indeed.

Hello Vanni

Salut Michel

Excellente photo à l'envol de la la grande aigrette
superbement focusé, par sa pose à l'envol on peut
sentir sa vitesse de vol, excellent netteté
et détails de son plumage blanc.

L'été dernier j'en ai vu un s'envoler de
très loin au parc de l'Île-Bizard, TFS
