Great Egret landing. There is a small lake close to my house. It was peak summer and the lake had almost dried out. Fish in the lake were caught in small remaining pools of water, attracting a huge number of birds to feed on this feast. I positioned myself in such a way that sun was rising behind the egrets. I made this shot as one of the egrets came in to land, underexposing by a 1 stop, allowing sun-rays to filter through its translucent feathers.
