The Great Egret (Ardea alba) also known as Common Egret, Large Egret or Great White Heron, is a large, widely distributed egret. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, in southern Europe it is rather localized. In North America it is more widely distributed, and it is ubiquitous across the Sun Belt of the United States and in the Neotropics. The Old World population is often referred to as the Great White Egret. This species is sometimes confused with the Great White Heron of the Caribbean, which is a white morph of the closely related Great Blue Heron (A. herodias). (From Wikipedia)

una splendida immagine sia per il soggetto che per l'eccellenza della ripresa che evidenzia nitidezza, un eccellente contrasto e colori molto delicati.
Il riflesso inoltre aiuta a creare una composizione impeccabile che merita di essere elogiata .
Ciao e buona serata

Gorgeous, just a gorgeous picture.
Few to add about that very sharpen photograph.
The title is very explicit.
Maybe a black frame to extract the picture out of the background of the html page.

You're really the specialist of all that can fly ! I'm admirative to whom succed to catch animals in movement. Here, the light, the focus and the reflection make a great pic.

Excellent 'Doppelganger' view of the White Egret in flight with wings spread, gliding across the water.
I cannot recall ever seeing Egrets in the Las Vegas area.

Whatever it's called this is a beautiful bird and you have captured it in a perfect position which makes the most of its natural elegance and grace. The reflection creates a wonderful effect of opposing diagonals with slightly different tones.

Formidable capture, d'une netteté incroyable avec un effet de miroir excellent, magnifique

A simple minimalist composition but a powerful one with good symmetry of the lone bird in flight and its superb reflection. Excellent sharpness, density, and graphism with excellent color and saturation. I may have cropped a little at left so it is directly over the 1/3 axis. Tfs!

This is very beautiful. I love the way that there is plenty of negative space so that we can really enjoy this lovely bird and its immaculate mirrored reflection.
KInd Regards, Ann

Spectacular shot! Splendid this bird in flight with its reflection in the water. You're really the specialist of all that can fly!
abmdsudi (54063) 2013-10-05 10:08
An impressive wildlife and the mirror reflection holds the attention. You managed to get a good detail of the flying bird as the sunshine brightens up and pick out some of the colours while darker water accentuates its contrast perfectly. A delightful little fella stunningly stands out against the background for all to sit back and admire. Congrats.
