[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The white morph of Dimorphic Egret is very similar to Little Egret. Bill is a bit stronger, feet and part of tarsus yellow (higher up than on Little Egret) and many birds show a few grey feathers.
The blue horizon is a coral reef.

Bonjour Tom
très jolie prise de vue en plein vol, la netteté est excellente. J'aime aussi particulièrement la coloration de l'image avec cette bande verte de l'horizon.


Simply perfect in flight capture, leaving a great detail to see! Love it! Cheers, Klaus

Hello Tom !
What an impresive capture ! You have perfectly frozen the bird ! Excellent details, beautiful colors and exposure, wonderful composition and POV, and the blue BG is particularly nice. i also like the pose of the bird, with the wings dows, so we can admire the beautiful white feathers. Very well done !

selam tom, wow an excellent shot and very good composition of this lovely bird nice pov and bg with splendid colours. Well done ! Regards ridvan

Hi Tom,
I would say you have about perfect exposure of these whites here, and excellent sharpness/details. Very good color, POV and composition also. And the horizon is straight too! ;)
Very well done!

Absolutely beautiful photo of this egret, Tom!
Great pose of the bird and perfect technique from your side as always.

I might have cropped it a little bit closer but I often get criticised for doing just that... ;o)

Best regards/Bengt Falke
