I never saw any of these in the UK until around 10 years ago; now they are fairly common. They are attractive birds.
Wonderful capture Ellie. I like the expression!

This is absolutely super Ellie: a really fine looking bird. That water looks like pastel coloured light machine oil!
Nice and sharp with the zoom

Lovely study, Ellie.

Will he ever grow up to be a Big Egret...
Very nice shot. I think he gave you a break and posed for this.

Another finely observed shot Ellie. I saw 3 wild deer this morning in the field whilst on my walk. No camera and they were off in a blink as soon as they saw me. I think I will stick to street photography ;o)
Nice shot of a smart looking bird.
He has posed perfectly, lovely capture Ellie smile
I love the satin look of the water
Good beak on him. Well captured Ellie

Almost a still life.
I hope it remembered it is a little egret and didn't try to catch sharks.
Superb capture and I love the various swirly colours in the water
wonderful capture - not just the beautiful egret, but the lovely reflections on the water too
Well done, Ellie. These birds have a habit of walking away from me faster than I can stalk them. (:o)
