Endless Patience: Great Egret (wild)
Photographer: Alison Davies
Location: San Diego River, CA
This beautiful Great Egret was exercising great patience and determination as it waited for the opportunity to snag a fish for breakfast. It held so perfectly still that all ripples in the water disappeared, creating this unique, lovely reflection.
Digital Alterations: 
Minor adjustments were made to brightness and clarity, and some tiny floating particles were removed from the surface of the water. Image was cropped to achieve most pleasing composition.
