Mike that really is very nice.
Love the composition.
The bird detailed against the reeds really shows the Egret off very nicely.

Thanks so much, Richard. Your comment points are very positive and inspiring.

Thanks Mike, they certainly do add colour wherever they are.

It is chucking down with rain here today on a bleak as winter day. Another one of these popped up along the back fence to feed on some berries - boy did it lift my spirits.

And to think they are so common here we kinda take them for granted....
