Hi Jim,
Splendid shot of this Reddish Egret with superb details on its plumage and nice colours. The evening sunlight looks majestic and the wavy blue waters looks beautiful. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

I just walked out to my roof to see the charming full Moon. There is a bit of cloud cover and it is playing hide and seek. Looking awesome and bright - as always.

Hello Jim,
Impressive shot of a Reddish Egret, shaking up his plumage in readiness for his role tonight in the full moon,
Nice sharpness and color and a fine composition.
TFS and have a good weekend!

You are certainly learning more about your bird techniques Jim. The colors are not too harsh and the focus is just perfect. Backdrop could not be more natural, nor better...


Great shot! Wonderful focus/sharpness. Great details. And perfect title! ha ha

Hello Jim,
Love the warm colors and light in this beautiful image.
Had to laugh loudly over the great title :)
Wonderful feather details and movement in the wing, wich give some sence of action.
Sharpnesss, lighting and composition are excellent and the color contrast is beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice Sunday,

Hi Jim,

A wonderful Reddish Egret shaking up his feathers! So that's how he changes into a Wereheron. Beautiful colors - the shadings are marvelous. Excellent details of the both the plummage and the face. Don't think we will see the full moon here - completely overcast and raining.


Oh my gosh! ... as if I don't have enough things to worry about! : )

I don't recall ever seeing a red egret. It is very striking, even if evil minded. I like the rich colors in your photo. Exposure and sharpness where it counts look good to me.

Evelynn : )

Beautiful capture Jim
I've never seen a Reddish Egret. Lovely red plumage. Great POV, nice soft lighting, excellent detail.

All this Egret needs is a couple of fangs sticking out and presto a werewolf. ;)

TFS Janice
