Tiptoe by mydigitalmind Tiptoe by mydigitalmind
The Reddish Egret will very gracefully run, jump and change directions while in pursuit of fish. It is a fascinating behavior to watch! You can see that he barely makes any ripples behind him.

This is the kind of picture I like most, the one that shows animals in action, not only perched birds, or cats staring at you. Perhaps these are more perfect, but less appealing, and incomparably easier to take. In short: congratulations, because your image is both attractive and technically good.
