Hello Ike,a really well presented image in a square format,the exposure is very well chosen,giving much feather detail with a pleasant back lighting,the raised leg adds a nice touch of dynamism.
The Eucalyptus tree in flower and the branch make a good frame.
Best regards

Ciao Ike, great capture of lovely White Egret in nice pose on a beautiful sky, wonderful colors, perfect focus on eye, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hallo Ike,
i think about the ID that this heron is a Little Egret (Egretta garzetta), not a White-Egret (see the yellow feet); a very good capture with fine detail and beautiful white tones, nice composition
Best regards

Shalom Ike,

Awesome capture of a Little Egret -as indicated by Maurizio- against to opposite light! You've caught a lovely moment and posture of the beauty with perfect timing!
TFS and have a nice week!

Hello Ike,
Nice photo of this Little Egret in beautiful colours and good sharpness. Excellent POV and composition. Pleasing blue sky in the BG.

Hi Ike,

The eucalyptus tree is helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the White Egret. The morning light us enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
