“The Dance” is a photograph of a Great Egret as it stands at the end of a pier on Caye Caulker, Belize. I had a wonderful opportunity to photograph this bird as it preened itself for almost 4.5 hours on a sunny, warm day. I sat at the dirt-end of the pier, and enjoyed the changing light, wind, and shore-sounds of my favourite island.
For a few hours, I focused on the bird, and forgot that I have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, full-body. I’m 59.
