Snowy Egret on the World Cup Golf Course in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Its great seeing the wildlife there. I don't play golf, I just drive the cart for my husband or my brother..:o) And talk photos while they are playing..:o) I love watching the egrets, they are such big birds and so graceful and beautiful.

Hi Donna.
What a graceful picture. I am impressed so much. Hurrying charming egret is looked amazingly at this surroundings. Composition of the shot is brilliant as well as the POV and excellently selected DOF. Colour reproduction is close to outstanding. My compliments and greetings.

An almost casual atmosphere for you to take pictures. And so because you are relaxed, th pictures come out well... A very much in the hurry bird this appears as. Not family but reminds me, due to building, of a pink flamingo made of plastic:-) Very nicely captured moment in time.

Hello Donna
Wonderful shot of this Snowy Egret ,
Perfect focusing,lighting and composition,
Welldone :o)

Good Luck

Hi Donna,
A very fitting title for this great moment. He really is doing its best to get away as fast as possible. Great work on the compostion and DOF. The short grass and large house BG give a good idea of the location.
