Great White Egret

Great White Egret (Egretta alba) making a splash near the banks of Nyamithi Pan, Ndumo Game Reserve, South Africa. In all honesty, I can’t remember if the egret was landing or taking off, but think it was taking off after landing very briefly. The small bird standing on the bank (left foreground) is a Threebanded Plover (Charadrius tricollaris).

Camera used for this image was my Canon EOS 450D (Canon Rebel XSi 12.2MP) with a Canon EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS zoom lens at full zoom. Shutter speed was 1/640 at an aperture of f8.
