A great egret takes to the air bathed in evening back light rimming through its wings.....taken today at my favourite nature spot. Any comments welcome and thanks for viewing.

Hi Dilshan...excellent shot. great back light showing the transparency of the feathers...good work.


Beautiful Dilshan! The bird is so sharp .. you've really nailed that. But yes, the best part is the light coming through the wing, and the shadow of the neck. Just great. A great nature spot close to home .. you're very lucky.

Fantastic capture, like a ballet dancer! I like the transparent wings taken against the light

Hello Dilshan,
Contre jour at its best. Perfect. Beautiful. Fabulous!

Oh, Dilshan,
what an awesome photo! Perfect stop action, exquisite detail and sharpness, and I LOVE backlight. You have used it so beautifully here through the wings of this bird. And so clear you can even see the iris in its eye. That is one fabulous shot! Many thanks and kindest wishes,

A picture one can only dream of, Dilshan!

Perfect use of backlight and an amazing control on exposure, in avoiding any OE on its tender and soft feathers. Great sharpness and well chosen POV for this bird photography.
Great work!

Kind regards,

Bonjour Dilhan
C'est merveilleux cette transparence et cette netteté
wonderful, amazing, fantastic

Hi Dilshan
Just wonderful shot captured this egret against the light to high light its feathers with superb sharpness and details.
Best Wishes

Hi Dilshan, this is a really sharp image with that beautiful sunlight coming through the feathers. Great light management keeping out any oe on the wings and catching the silhouette of the birds neck. Fiona
