Crikey!!! How beautifully lit he is Pete! You've handled the exposure superbly to brink out some lovely feather and contour details!

Very well done lad.
Cheers Delia - it was a lovely day and got great shutter speeds. The GWE was well lit.
Gorgeous egret and a fabulous picture with excellent stop-action, lighting, focus, colors, and detail. Fantastic work Pete!
