Nice work. Before about 20 years ago you never saw Egrets in the Uk now they're  becoming more common.

We use to watch egrets sped along an embankment when we lived in Africa, they are so graceful and these birds silently watch over too, like protectors of the water-bird life! 

A gorgeous Egret standing tall and chilling out with the ducks, excellent pastel painting John,  and the colours do glow!
