Shadow Shot Sunday

Egret in Hirose River in Sendai by Juana Almaguer

This was taken last month when my husband and I were walking along the river. The same walk where I had stepped on my glasses. I think this is an Egret? Bird experts, feel free to correct me. This Egret was wading in the river's shadowed current. I assume it was trying to catch its next meal. I was amazed that those skinny legs could hold up against that current. By the way, even though the frames of my glasses were mangled, the optician managed to fix them and at no cost.

Birdie shot is great! Seems don't care the surroundings. Got a good self confident, huh?

Cheers!

Love the blue in this shot - just beautiful! Isn't it nice when you get things fixed at no charge? I had a flat last week and the guys fixed it for free too - lovely suprises!!

Oh how beautiful! I'm transfixed by that water! I'm thinking the bird is an Egret. Sounds good to me! What a lovely optician you have! Free fixing! Yay!

Oh, what a wonderful shot. It's reminiscent of a traditional Japanese painting. The egret looks so serene against the tormented current of the river. Beautiful.

They are truly one of Natures most elegant creatures. We have them in rookeries here in Iowa, the trees filled with bright white dots nesting...great shot.

Beautiful scene and the egret does appear to deal with the tumbling waters remarkably!
