Graceful Grab

Audubon Park Lagoon, New Orleans Louisiana

It is amazing how the Great Egret with it's substantial wingspan can grab a branch from the water for it's nest and not get a single feather wet.

For best viewing please choose the ORIGINAL size option at bottom of this page.

Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.

Stunning capture and a perfectly expose photo. Bright sunlight on a white subject and no blown highlights and perfect detail. The position is lovely. Great image, Phil. Vote.
