13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This egret is just taking off from the lake shore, but it looks as if he's dancing! The light-hearted feeling comes from the evening light, reflected pale blue sky, and green reeds. It looks like spring, even though it was actually November.
