[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret or (in the Old World) great white heron,[2][3][4] 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).

Hello Xanthos,
Not an easy task to capture this egret in full flight and still get it in sharp focus. The face especially shows good detail and the colors are true and natural. I like the way we can still see motion in it's wings.

Hi Xanthos,
Nice image with sharp focus.
