Walking on Water
This is a Great Egret, I believe, on Lady Bird Lake. What's amazing is that he is in the middle of the lake. He's not really walking on water but seemed to be balancing on a branch or piece of wood, adjusting his stance like a log roller as it drifted in the current while he scanned the water for brunch. I took this with my Nikon P90 from the Drake Bridge (S. First) and zoomed in to get some detail but you still can't see his improvised raft although it was apparent to us from his movement.
