Dressed for dawn
Csaba had been in a hide all night photographing nocturnal species and their activities, but as the golden light of dawn reflected on the surface of the water, an egret in wonderful breeding plumage stopped close by. The elongated scapular feathers covered the bird as if it was wearing a gown.
Nikon D7200 + Nikon 300mm f2.8 AF-S VR lens; 1/640sec at f7.1; ISO 1600; hide.
