superb photo, Kim!! great feather details, love the feathers in the neck being blown by the wind. Top quality, many tfs!!!

they are indeed getting quite common nowadays in many regions in Western Europe, I still remember like 40 years ago, they were really extremely rare over here.
I ran into quite a few of these guys over the weekend.

A beautiful image of this Egret Kim and so nicely captured girl.

He looks determined to carry on his journey, Kim! A very nicely detailed capture.
