Hi everyone,

This will be my last posting for this year, as Pauly and I are off to Thailand for a holiday tomorrow,

We wish all of our good friends on TN a very happy Xmas and a wonderful New Year! we will catch up with you guys in the new year,

Little egret[Egretta garzetta]

Distribution and habitat

Occupies much of sub-Saharan Africa, largely excluding the equatorial lowland forest of the DRC and west Africa. In southern Africa, it is uncommon to locally common in central and southern Mozambique, Zimbabwe, northern and eastern Botswana, patches of Namibia and much of South Africa, largely excluding the arid Northern Cape. It generally prefers the shallow margins of rivers, lakes, estuaries, pans, marshes and saltpans, but it also moves into mangroves, open coastal flats and man-made habitats such as sewage works, canals and dams.
Best Regards,

Hello Bungbing,
The first thing that caught my eye was the white balance and exposure in this image. Even though the plumage is all white you have captured some excellent detail and beautiful natural coloration.
I like the intense gaze on his face and attractive pose, which allows us to get a great view of his unique features. Such a pretty bird and shown in a top quality image. Well done!!
