In the click of a camera button

In the millisecond it took to click the button of my camera, I caught this ethereal little egret taking off in a shower of water droplets and elegance. I love that a scene of beauty like this can be captured in the time it takes to blink. I love that the wings blur to show the flurry of motion in just one tiny point in time, yet the image is one of peace and stillness that will last forever. This is my image of time.
