Egret – Is It A Miss

I was watching two Egrets that were close. When this one shook and fluffed his feathers I knew or hoped it was going to take off. I quickly but not fast enough tried to get ready for the action. Well I missed, as I reviewed the image I thought about cropping for a different appeal. I liked what would have been otherwise deleted.
I entered this one in a photo contest and was told by one judge he really liked the shot. But, the other judges didn’t because it didn’t show the bird. Oh well, I’ll keep it.
