CommentI often try to capture bird images from a low perspective rather than looking down on them. This is a small waterfall and I was able to stand below the fall to capture this Egret almost at eye level. I had been watching it walk across the pathway and managed to catch it as it paused and vigorously shook its feathers. I like this because it is different.
