This snowy egret flew in quite close and was playing around in front of me along with a reddish egret, and tri color heron. It was quite fun having all within 25 feet of me. Enjoy :)

Wonderful shots, very sharp, great light; that first shot is a knockout, the crispness in the feathers, the reflection and the water drops, excellent.

Jason, these are stunning! Well done. I love the vibrant blue against the brilliant white.

both beautiful, but absolutely love that first one. The reflection, and movement implied by the water is just perfect.

Great shots Jason. You really nailed the exposure on these giving good detail without blowing out the highlights too much. Love the water dropping in the first one.
