Beautiful job of isolating your subject on that gorgeous background, Karl. Also, very nice composition and detail.

Karl, Terrific photo. I'm really nit picking here and I know it -- but if you selectively brightened the trailing feet just a tad, I think it would make the overall bird stand out better from the background. Sorry for the nit....

Beautiful pose, colours, detail and light, Karl. The exposure for the white plumage is perfect! Lovely image.

Great flight shot Karl! Very nice light. Very rarely we see Great Egrets here where I live.
