I was mesmerized by the golden eye of this snowy egret set against the blue-green background. Look at the luminousness and delicacy of its feathers, and the streaks of paler blue against the slate-colored bill. Taken in Tampa, it's just an awesome capture and has deservedly won all sorts of Flickr awards and honors. Gorgeous.
