Photo: Walking egret is postcard perfect

405 of 1608

Our photo of the day comes from beautiful Maui, Hawaii.

Is it just me, or does this photo look like a 3-D postcard? And I mean that in the very best way. The clarity of the elegant cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis) against the blurry bokeh of the Pacific Ocean and Molokai in the background makes for such a striking photo. Greetings from Hawaii never looked so good! Thanks to photographer Rick Derevan for this moment of tropical revelry.
