About This Image

A Great Egret, who was resting on the roof of a building at Key Largo Bird Sanctuary. He looks rather majestic with his fine feathers blowing in the gentle breeze.

Thanks for viewing :)

Yes, this is wonderful. Really like how the framing compliments the soft texture and colors of the egret.

Beautiful photo.. I like the pose you caught with the wind blowing it's feathers.

I can remember viewing this some time back and I still enjoy viewing it now. I love the way the wind has wrapped those fine feathers around it. Very well captured Jas :)

Great photo. The vignetting and framing really add to the image.

So glad you liked this Alandra and thanks for the lovely comments. He did portray himself as Lord of the Manor, surveying all his land! :)

have only just seen this one, Jas, - am so far behind with viewing everyones' images, regretfully. Caught sight of this one right away. The blue colouring just sets off the beautiful white of the egret so very well, and the wind blowing the lovely feathers like that is perfect. A wonderful image!

He really does look like the wise one, the great master of all birds. What a stunning photo Jas :)

Thank you Vicki. Yes, it was quite breezy and I thought he looked as if he were surveying all before him, just like Royalty. Thank goodness for the telephoto lens, which enabled me to get in a bit closer. :)

This is ssensational. THis egret is in its breeding plumage - it looks like a breezy day. Beautifully captured and edited. Vicki

Wow is this ever a nice picture. The bird looks particularly majestic when shot from down below.

Beautiful capture of this bird, they are beautiful

Great r-egret that these paradise birds don't come in Montreal. In old times, these feathers ornated ladies hats. Beautiful bird and capture!
marysham - Feb 19, 2008 12:38 PM EDT
This is a beautiful capture Jas. I like the detail and the way the breeze is fanning it's feathers out.
azkul - Feb 19, 2008 12:02 PM EDT
Very pretty bird. Nice pose, and I like the vignette and border.
