Hi Vera,

Wonderful capture of this Little Egret on the top of the tree. Fantastic pose looking great against the blue sky. Nice colors and details and a superb composition.


Ola Vera,
Very nice of seeing you here in TN!
Thank you for sharing such beautiful image of Egret!
great pose of it in perfect sharpness, wonderful colour and details and I especially like the golden sunlight here
many thanks


A well composed pic. The BG allows the subject to stand out quite well. The lighting is very soft and allows you to not over expose the white subject. Your composition is also good.

Olá Vera.
Que bela imagem dessa esguia Garça Branca!
Composição muito bonita, enquadramento perfeito.
Gosto dessa luminosidade e cromatismo também.
Parabéns pelo excelente click!
José Roberto

Hello Vera,

A majestic bird captured in all its beauty!
I notice the interesting one leg pose, some birds do this but I have no idea why...
Excellent exposure of the white plumage, fine details in the eye-catching composition!

Hi Vera,
You've got a very interesting pose with the neck bended in that way, besides beeing standing up on one leg.
Beautiful contrast against the blue sky as background.
Well done and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Ótima a garça, Vera. É um pássaro comum, mas a sua foto não o é. A exposição do branco é perfeita, com detalhes nítidos na plumagem. Luz excelente! Também gosto da posição da "moça", com a pata levantada. Belíssima foto! Parabéns!

Hello Vera,
an excellent shot of the bird.
I always realise that shooting bird is very difficult and needs patience.
Great composition of the blue sky and white body, giving the shot a very exciting and impressive one.
Excellent composition with great clarity and superbs harpness.


Hi Vera,
This is a sophisticated picture of an elegant bird! I like this composition a lot, perfect exposure and nice details. I have never seen this bird in real :) Greetings,

Hi Vera,

The bird on the tree is impressive. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the bird. The subject is well frame. The colors are enhanced by the good light. have a nice day.


Ciao Vera,
complimenti per la tua bellissima galleria, eccellenti POV dal basso e DOF, mi piace la scelta della composizione orizzontale che stringe sull'airone bianco maggiore e dà spazio al suo sguardo, ottima definizione, molto bella la luce calda che accarezza il piumaggio.

Great POV and pose, interesting light.
I like the warm color, nice details & sky BG also :)
Well done,

Hi Vera, excellent shot of this beautiful huge egret on the tip of a tree. Lovely posture and wonderful composition.
TFS and cheers,
