CommentIn search of food, a Great Egret quietly navigates the lake's shallow part with patience and concentration. With its eyes fixated on the water's surface, it slowly moves through the reeds and avoids sudden movements. Spotting opportunity, its neck quickly prepares for a precise strike and a swift attack. I have chosen this photo for this competition as it is one of my more artistic photos from the past year. It illustrates a fairly common Australian bird hunting midst the reeds during the early morning. What makes this photo special for me is how the light and colours compliment each other and also how the Egret is positioned behind the reeds which gives the perspective of isolating a specific animal midst the vegetation.
