Reflected egret

Reflected egret
Fascinated by the contrast and reflections, I photographed this graceful egret as it strolled slowly through a shallow pond at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mount Coot-tha. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 40-150mm zoom at 141mm [equivalent to 282mm in full-frame 35mm], f/4.5, 1/200 sec., ISO 100, open shade, handheld)

Explore 15 August 2013 - thank you very much!

A lovely catch and reflection especially against the dark, Celeste.

Thanks, Monica! The contrast of the scene was one of the appeals, as it made the egret so prominent.
