This Great White Egret Egretta alba was hunting just in front of one of the hides you can find in Camargue. Actually it got a crayfish just in front of our eyes.

Hello Tom,
Very good action photo of this Great White Egret. Excellent timing. Beautiful light and colours with the dark contrasting BG. Nice reflection, POV and composition.

Hello Tom,
Excellent capture taken with fine details, natural colors, good light management, nice pose and great POV.

Hallo Tom
This is a very peaceful image, jam packed with lovely details which is well seen and displayed. The Great White Egret is a striking bird. The white plumage is eye-catching and displays lovely against the rippled water as backdrop, which also create the perfect framing. Thanks for sharing this Egret captured in the water, going about doing its daily business, well to your advantage. Both birds are a beauty; that is the real one and off course the one in the reflection. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Tom,
moment well captured with frozen splash of water. The reflection is so beautiful and the white body is well balanced indeed.
Simple but effective with artistic composition.


Hi Tom,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is shwoing the details and colors of the Great White Egret. It is clear and sharp. It is well placed in the frame. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Tom,

Beautiful action photo of an interesting bird in its natural environment. You captured the movement of the hunt and the reflection in the water to present us with a beautiful and well balanced photo.

Regards, Phillip

Hi Tom,
Great timing here, capturing the strike which can be difficult to do. Wonderful exposure and focus create this splendid image.
