    A lovely bird, on my hitlist for the next time I'm on your side of the pond. Nice walking pose, light was a bit bright, but you've handled it as well as I think you can

    The reflected foot makes this image.

    Such a beautiful, elegant bird. Agree with Colin, the reflected foot makes such a difference.
    Hard to believe the water was that free of detritus - maybe a bit of cleaning up had to be done.
    I think I am seeing a slight halo on the breast and there is a stray white feather or something on the back which I think I would have removed.
    Lovely shot!
