Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “On Top of the Subject” by Linn Smith

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day by Linn Smith features a beautiful snow egret searching for his next meal beneath the mirrored surface of the water.

“Snowy Egret creates a mirror like image of itself as it stands on top of its subject while searching for food in the calm waters of Lake Jesup located in Seminole County, Florida,” writes Smith.

This image was captured with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Canon 100-400mm lens, 1/2000 sec, f/11 and ISO 320.
