[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all. Shot this Egret in same place as my previous post. This area is like a small harbor for fishing boats. Water will remain calm on no wind day. In this place lot of Egrets, herons are there and they fight with each other to snatch the fish away from the catcher. After clicking this he flew away to snatch one.

It was cloudy day. Hand held shot on ISO 400.

All C&C are welcome.
Regards - Adil.

Very nicely done, I like the simple, uncluttered background and the dignified stance of the egret. Gary

Hello Adil,

You have got a fine eye contact in your photo. The bird is sharply shown and the colors are good and naturaly looking. The blurry backgruond enhaces the sharpness of the bird.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Adil, nice shot and a very good composition. You shot on a solid rock which is reflecting very well in the frame. Ganesh

Hi Adil,
what a beautiful picture of this Egret taken from an excellent low POV with superb sharpness in a lovely composition; i like the nice colours and the contrast against a good OOF natural BG.
TFS: Best regards.

Hola Adil,
Magnífica captura en una bella pose, excelente definición, luz y color, saludos
