This Great Egret fans it's specialized feathers call Aigrettes to try and attract a mate to build a nest and breed with. As you can see there are several interested prospects in the background. Image captured in swamps of Southeast Louisiana. Full 300mm capture then heavily cropped. Thanks for all views,comments and votes. Much Appreciated!

Great shot, E.J.! "Only" a 9 because it´s a single RAW (you know my attitude).

Beautiful birds - just wish all the birds were in focus, but with a 300mm a great attempt & shot!

This has turned out to be a great theme -- I love the color and light, I only wish every element of the picture was in focus but that is my taste and I understand your POV --Great job!!

Thanks Bryan and I respect your POV. When I shot it I tried to just put the emphasis on the bird which was trying to attract a mate. Thanks for your view.

Also, birds in background out of focus gives the image more Depth.

Love the DOF but I would have removed birds in the background. Yeah I know purist won't agree. :+)
