[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As is well known by all the egret bird lazy and opportunistic. Where can is surrounding fishermen or fishing boats to pick up the leftovers or even steal a fish.
That's what happened in this scene, The Heron front stole a piece of fish from that is behind and this prepares the chase.

Yes, they are but I also saw a pelican trying to grab a fisherman's catch while still on the hook, it was funny scene with the fisherman and the bird fighting for the fish. Good capture with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Raimundo
A well composed shot that has good detail. I like it all, except the birds (especially the one on the right) are overexposed. I see that you used spot metering and wonder whether this was a good choice. I'm sure an expert could tell you.

Hi my today TL nighbour Raimundo,
Excellent shot. Very vivid colors, nice framing and excellent composition.
Very well done.
Best regards,

Hi Raimundo,
The egret on the wall is well detailed however the one in flight is OE, short of detail and slightly OOF. I know its not always easy or sometimes not practical to capture these fast moments.

Hello Raimundo,the two birds balance the composition and keep the eyes moving around the picture.
Yes, the egret on the right is a little OOF but the composition needs him there.Good idea to keep the top of the shot tight with no sky to distract.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Boa noite Raimundo
