A Snowy Egret (Egretta thula) settling down for the night at Mahoe Bay, Jamaica.

I have quite a few shots of this but couldn't decide on which one or cropping (still suffering from jet lag) so I've uploaded this full frame version.

This is very, very special, John. Wonderful application of a stunning silhouette against an exceptional sky. Personally I'm pleased you chose not to crop. It's a delight.

Absolute stunner. Love the feathery fronds against that sky with the sharper shadow of the birds. Great work. Click. Ali.
