An egret /ˈiːɡrət/ is any of several herons, most of which are white or buff, and several of which develop fine plumes (usually milky white) during the breeding season. Many egrets are members of the genera Egretta or Ardea which also contain other species named as herons rather than egrets. (From Wikipedia)

This is a great shot, maybe a bit tight at the bottom, but with superb colors and light management. The mirror is almost as clear as the real bird.

One of your patented action shots but representing a different genre than the fighter planes and trainers. In this instance, it is also a pair of photos for the the price of one. Well done.

A beautiful bird shot. Exposure looks good, one needs to be careful with white feathers, as they are easily overexposed. Funny how the reflection seems to be squeezed against the bottom of the frame.

Beautiful shot of this flying bird. Even the reflection is quite sharp. Fine colours. Lovely shot:) Thanks.
Enjoy your weekend.

Simply beautiful Eleu!
The heron,its reflection and the water surface create together so eye-catching visual effect!
Simple,but very evocative scene.

A nice minimalist shot of the solitary bird in flight with excellent sharpness and graphism. The symmetrical reflection is a decided bonus. Well framed and composed although a bit more breathing space below the reflection would have been good. Tfs!

Wow! This has blown me away. I have the feel of speed while the bird in flight, I am really really happy with the shot with super sharpness, glorious colours, clarity of the image and the stunning contrast. Indeed an eye grabber and the bonus of mirror reflection to clinch the shot. Magic camera skills showing excellent technique, Congrats
