In the Breeze by CailinGore In the Breeze by CailinGore
This is an Eastern Great Egret displaying its' breeding colours that I photographed not long ago. I had to take the photo from the car so that I couldn't scare it away :shifty:
Sadly, I can't enter this photo in a nature competition for photo club, which means I'll enter it in colour prints instead.
Comments and feedback are very welcome and are always appreciated :)

Looking a tad windswept here- he looks like he's wrapping his plumage about himself to keep warm somehow! :heart:

Thank you :) Never saw it that way, it really does look like he's using those feathers to keep warm!

I always look forward to more deviations from you. :D

Although I like this image very much, something about the bird's stance gives me the heebies a bit. Not sure if it's just the bird itself or what, so I thought I'd mention it anyway, in case it's meant to evoke that kind of response (a take on the sadness inherent in the effect of humans in wild critters?). I'm probably talking out of my butt. ;)

I really like the way you can see the breeze has fluffed his feathers, and again, fantastic texture through the image.
