Walking around the Thale Noi lake is not just looking at water lilies and lotus, but also birds. There are countless birds, but only few you see. Some are hard to overlook like the Eastern Great Egret in the picture looking for his breakfast. This 83-103 cm high bird weights 700-1200 grams. It certainly is a very proud bird nonetheless he keeps his distance from humans.

Lovely work Urs.Lovely brightness, vibrant colours and a nice moment as the egret zooms onto its target. The sunlight even catches its beak. Regards. Klaudio.

How wonderful to visit a colourful area like these wetlands and a bonus to get a shy egret as well and perfectly placed in the frame.
l like the red water lillies.Lovely composition.

A very impressive creature whose pale tones contrast nicely with its surroundings. I like the slightly off-centre placement and the framing offered by the lush vegetation.

A fine study of this elegant bird at work. I like the composition with a diagonal marshy ground and in the foreground a green triangle with a red frame. The light is very good and the sharpness is perfect.
PS I'll send you a separate mail to reply to your question the other day. I almost forgot.

Very good catch, the lateral light gives a 3 D effect
Interesting perspective of the river

Hello pretty Eastern Great Egret,
If you read what Uncle Urs had to write about this lake, you would not be so eager to dine here.
Interesting light, look, that egret has three legs and a pink wing!
