Weekend Reflections--Taking Off

 
Posted by Picasa


I noticed this egret standing on that little raft in Lake Ella and just as I walked over to the edge of the lake to take his picture, he took off. To view other beautiful Weekend Reflections from around the world click here.

I wondered what the thing was -- and a raft it is with the bird taking off.

Thanks for the comment about the letter to Esme.

Very nice especially enlarged!

Wonderful capture, Lois! I think this is a much more interesting shot than if he were just standing on the raft.

Beautiful place and bird too!

Darn egrets! They have a habit of doing that. But, I think his taking off made for a better photo?

I like his shadow in the water, too.

Well done, Lois!

He is perfectly posed in the air for you! That's great!

I agree. Seeing the egret with wings out and the reflection in the water is a great shot. Nice work Lois.

Beautiful capture, Lois! I too love the reflections in the water - especially that of the soaring egret.
