A Snowy Egret (Egretta Thula) shaking to dry off after getting wet while attempting to catch a fish at Brazos Bend State Park, Houston, Texas, USA.

I wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful name suggestion. I picked this photo for the challenge because it was funny and was hoping people would have some fun with it.

The winner for name suggestion is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Penny Lane with: Alexander

The other photo I was considering for this challenge was another of this bird. I took a 3 second bust of him shaking to dry off (a total of 29 images). Several of the photos from this burst came out really good. Here is my favorite from that series

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1145201.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/45000-49999/47974/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1145201.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The full burst can be found here if anyone is interested: 3 Second Burst
