As an Egret shooter I can really appreciate your shots. I love the one of the Snowy Egret walking through the puddle reflecting the blue sky. Makes for such a nice background instead of black mud. Never seen a solitary Great White Egret share territory with a Snowy Egret like that. The bigger one always runs the runt off. Maybe its common in your neck of the woods. Great shots!

Nice shots Harish! Very cool birds and that is sure an ugly fish he got.

Several very good images here. To pick one, the eighth down would be my favorite.

Now this is the way egrets should be captured - well composed, well exposed and sharp as can be.

Great job.

Terrific photos, Harish! My own ambition, the next time I'm in the right place, is to capture Pelicans flying in perfect formation.

I've gotten a few egrets lately, but nothing this nice. Very good pictures.

Number 8 is my favourite - the lines of the legs, beak and reflection lead the eye to the bird. Beautifully sharp and colourful!
