Little egrets with different colours as background

I keep coming back to the same sort of "concept", if I can call it that: trying to get a decent photo out of what I can get, when what I can get is not much.
An ordinary photo, of an ordinary subject with less ordinary colours. If I take away the odd colours, I am left with almost nothing, so I look for reflections at chosen hours of the day. With these little egrets, the challenge is in avoiding to have them overexposed but, at the same time, avoiding underexposure on the rest of the photo. These are 3 examples in three very different conditions.
