Graceful Flight

By KingArthur
One of my favourite captures from last Autumn, shot on a cold November afternoon.

Undeterred with my presence on the bank, this graceful Little Egret flew in low over the creek offering a great opportunity to bag some decent frames. I recall settings, composing, framing, zooming, panning, shooting, all came together like clockwork on the day. I liked this particular shot at the end of the day as it shows sheer elegance in the Little Egret's graceful flight low over the water ..... very typical flight stance too. Viewing large draws you in closer .....

Have a good day,
Joe Smile

An elegant image and timed to perfection

the color stands out so well from the BG

and the detail not easy to capture in this BIF

The composition is perfect with just the right amount

of negative space and the eye is wonderful.

A well presented well taken Image get my
