[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Over and through the suffocating
patches and scraps of toxic cloud,
she glided her way through
like a fairy in white
- in search of a dignified,
decent daily meal;
with childhood-dreams
of fresh air of hope.
Dreams shatters, as
feet touch the marsh
filled with lethal filth,
choking plastic-bags and bottles
that fail to perish, but
perishes her very breath
slowly but surely.

Eyes filled with anguish
tears of sadness rolling
she looked towards me
that spoke volumes,
begging to save her world
which is now a contaminated
muck, creeping to drag down
my feet and yours!

Great Egret: It's a large bird with all-white plumage that can reach one meter in height, the Great Egret can be distinguished from other white egrets by its yellow bill and black legs and feet, Like all egrets, it is a member of the heron family.

Wake Up Call: Water pollution is a major problem in the global context. It has been suggested that it is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases, and that it accounts for the deaths of more than 14,000 people daily.

Hi Franco,
Beautiful pose and great composition. Color tones are also satisfying, maybe the brightness of the image is just a touch more than the optimal (by my opinion), probably caused by the f/18 - 1/200 combination. Excellent sharpness, by the way. A great visual impact overall, although the watermark is pointless and particularly damages the otherwise wonderful impression. You'd better forget watermarks if they don't fit to the composition, like in this case.
Have a great festive season, best regards, László

This photo and poem nails the poor stewardship of the world and the effects it has on nature, environment and all living life on this planet. Well done my friend...Keep up the good work...LINDA MARY
