CommentThis was my first Eastern Reef Egret. I was sitting on the beach as still as I could be as it was walking towards me at ever a slow pace. It looked directly into the camera lens and I was able to capture this shot. It is looking at you with caution but authority. Technically, it is sharp around the eyes, always the most important feature. The eyes are at the top third and bill directly down the middle of the frame helping to draw the viewer to the eyes.
