Thank you for c'c on Mrs Black Crake - much appreciated.
Not ideal to shoot top down but as we were standing on a bridge with a fast flowing river below and many crocodiles visible and active I thought I'll stay up there - got a series of shots of this Little Egret hunting successfully, only being disturbed by the Large White Egret and Grey Heron at times, they must have thought he/she has got the best fishing spot Wink - Ina

Beautifully detailed pin sharp capture Ina. Exposed to perfection - love that warm rich light and the minute water droplets dripping from the little fish.
