hi Sergey,wonderfull shot,good colours and detail,i like it.Cheer

Hi Sergey,
Thanks for sharing this great beauty with us.
Great composition with the diagonall lines of the wings, legs and body of the Egret.
Wonderful light, feather details and color contrast between the steeel blue sky and the yellow and green colors at the bill and in and around the eye of the bird.
The way the whites of the bird do stand out against the blue sky is very beautiful.
Perfect work again and a real joy to look at.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards and have a nice Sunday evening,

Wonderfull shot,good colours and details.
