[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Saw this fellow while my family and I were eating lunch at Friendlys in North Myrtle Beach. There was a small pond between the resturant and a parking lot. Amazing to see one of these snowy egrets in a pretty populated area. I was taking the shot through the window.
Thanks for your visit to my gallery and your comments on my photos...:o)

Hello Donna

A lovely composition.I really like the reflection and vivid colours.Good POV.Well done TFS


Hi Donna, this is a great composition with the bird walking beside and reflected in the water. The grass helps make this shot, but it may also have stolen some of your focus. The bird to me seems a little soft. still a great shot.

Thanks, John

Hello Donna,
Very nice capture with great composition, beautiful color and lovely reflection in the water. Talk about using a filter, A RESTURANT WINDOW.

Hello Donna,
This is one of the best through-the-window pictures I have seen. I wouldn't even make an attempt in such situation, so maybe I should the next time. Great composition with the low reflection. Very well done.
Best wishes,

hello donna
i know birds photography is difficult while they are in activity.
i like composition, point of view, reflections and framing in your photo.

Hello Donna,
Isn't that a stroke of great luck that while you are enjoying your lunch with the family in a restaurant, a fine pair of Snowy Egrets makes its appearance within your visual range outside :-)?
You did well to grab your camera and go for this shot. It is lovely!
The blue of the pond with the reflection of the bird on it makes a fantastic sight which you have captured very well.
Thanks for sharing it.

bonjour donna
helas un peu loin pour apprecier pleinement l'oiseau mais j'aime le reflet sur l'eau;

Hi Donna,

A good capture of the birds walking on the edge of the water. The reflection in the water is an asset to the photo. Well done, thanks for sharing.

Happy New Year 2008.
