White morph of the Eastern Reef Egret (Egretta sacra) fishing a school of baitfish, you can see the fish churning up the water. I saw it do this a few times, it seemed to go for fish at the edge of the school each time.

A fine image, Greg, with an excellent "pose", photographed here, plus the baitfish add interest to the scene, as well. Nice soft lighting, also.

Love soft light Greg. Superb pose and the addition of the bait fish sets it off nicely.
Make your life spectacular!

I like the turning pose and that you kept the horizon line straight to show the landmark, well done GREG.

I like the pose and wide crop, looks like a pretty good meal underneath the Egret.
