This wonderful shot captured the present. No background, no foreground, no motion, and only potential action.
awesome, i am into photography, because it captures life as is when i love to paint it, swiftly
the photo makes me envious and realize i am a dismal failure in photography, but i can
paint, that is transfer it on paper just as good
The egret inspired the arts of Chinese dynasties and Japanese cultures for enormous periods of time. The bird was venerated for longevity and beauty. One cannot dispute such admiration! It is wonderful.
I check out NGPOD daily and although many of the photos are impressive, I seldom comment. This one made me catch my breath... thank you!
Bravo for the shot that this perfect egret has made possible, and bravo too to the photographer who seized the moment to catch it! It is almost unreal to look at, yet it impacts the eye with its being very real . Just beautiful, and I love it. j.e.s.
@Howard Williams I thought National Geographic doesn't let New Jersians participate in "Your Shot". Contest is void in New Jersey, according to the fine print, along with Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Sudan, Syria, and Quebec.
