Great egrets are less then 1 meter long from bill to tail, 1 meter tall, have a wingspan of 1.5 meters, and weigh about 912 to 1140 g. On average, males are larger than females. They are completely white with a long yellow bill and dark gray legs. During flight their neck is usually in an “S” shaped curve. They are very elegant birds with plumage resembling lace.

Wiem jak plochliwa jest czapla biała. Tym bardziej podziwiam twoje zdjecie. Ladnie uchwyciles jej poze na koncu galezi.

A stunning catch. You have done a super job with the exposure. Nice composition and the BG compliments the shot perfectly. :-)
Especially the pose is brilliant.
Sharpness composition POV DOF are all very good.

I love the pose on this great egret, Juan.
Very photogenic. : )
Such a cute pose with the beak on the feet.
And the way he is standing on that branch is quite interesting.
Good exposure on the whites, which is a challenge.
Great work and TFS. : )
