EVERYBODY who comments on this post needs to ENLARGE the photo. It is amazing! Robin, I am serious, this is one of the best photos I've seen in quite a while.
Thanks, Pat. I agree entirely.
Yes! Beautiful! The different kinds of feathers interact with the water differently: Some spear through the surface; others bent by the surface.
And the reflection!
Bravo for a fabulous photograph! Kudos, indeed. The splayed feathers on the bird's side indicate that it's in breeding mode; maybe you like the image because it puts you in the "mood."?
Pat-- Thank you so much. I am so glad you liked this photo. John-- Thank you! CCorax-- Yes, that is what made me want to take the photo. The way those feathers hung down and interacted with the water. It was beautiful.Sabine-- Yes!Scott-- I had no idea that's what those splayed feathers meant. In the "mood"-- well, the bird is pretty cute, but no! LOL!
Not only click to enlarge it, but then click again to magnify. What a striking image!

Stunning photo. Everything about it. Ck out Doug Herr photos of birds -- you will be happy you did! Over the years, you have some amazing wildlife photos due to your patience, stealth, and good eye!
Tara-- So glad you liked this photo. There was just something about the way those feathers brushed the water that intrigued me. So glad the egret stayed so I could click a few photos.
