Me & my shadow

INTERPRETIVE – Runner-up

Enjoying a quiet lunch under the shade of a tented safari-style roof in Port Douglas, I had no sooner noticed the interesting abstract patterns created by the fallen leaves when a Cattle Egret landed and started searching for its own lunch up there. Its shadowy movements made for a memorable and unique image.
