The Little Egret is a common waterbird in Hong Kong.
Since most Little Egrets are residents in Hong Kong, they occur throughout the year in various types of wetlands including freshwater marshes and intertidal mudflat. You may find Little Egrets preying or resting at the shallow waters in many coastal areas..
There is a very comprehensive description of the Little Egrets in Wikipedia:
This week’s photo challenge is Reflection.
Woke up early in the morning and drove north to the place I like dearly – Luk Keng in the north eastern corner of the New Territories, Hong Kong.
I know some birds will be out there waiting for me.
Got out of the car and meeting me was a lone little egret in the shallow water.
The sun has just come up; we were in the golden hour. The tide was out and the reflection of the nearby hills was in the water. This little white egret just stood there motionless as if it was just a decoy. Its reflection was in the water.
It looks as if it was in a deep reflection. . . . . . . . . . . or was it I that was in a deep reflection? I don’t know.
