Hi all,

It has been a while since I posted anything on TN. This is a common Small Egret that I took while driving towards Bheemeswari from Bangalore. I found the way the Egret was sitting with a nice shadow on the calm waters appealing. Hence this picture.

Hi Murali!

You present us an outstanding wildlife picture. The overall atmosphere is superb and I like the lighting very much. I rarely have seen such a beautiful reflection. Moreover, it's well highlighted by a good depth of view and the fine sharpness reveals rich details.

Kind regards

This is a beautiful picture, worth being framed and exposed. I love the reflection, the quietness of the surrounding and the peaceful pose of the bird. The colours are great, everything is touching in this picture. It is greatly composed, with care and an attentive eye. Thank you Murali,

Hello Murali,
Very subtle colors and a fine subject make this shot very pleasing. I like your vertical composition. Interesting reflections in the water and a quite funny pose of the bird.
Thanks a lot
Best regards

Excellent. I doubt if there is any scope to improve this pic. Perfection!
