It was crazy that morning. So many birds with some of them so close I had to remove the teleconverter just to get them in the frame.
 
The droplet was a Bob Ross "happy accident" to be sure. I did not even see it until a few days later when in post production editing.
 
Superbly timed capture of this elegant egret with creative water droplets. Welcome to bf.

Fabulous frontal view close-up. Great timing getting the water droplet from its bill and the crossed legs. Top-notch Lil-Jens!
