A photo tells a story

A photo tells a story...or does it?

(Part 1) - A photo can tell a story, but it is often not the real story... This small white egret seems to be trying to get some fish but it is actually slipping and crashing into the water in spectacular style. A rather high score for its artistic performance.

(Part 2) - A photo can tell a story, but it is often not the real story... "the waltzing egret" could be a befitting caption for this photo. Yet, what seems to be a graceful moving egret is in fact an egret recovering from the awkward moment of clumsiness on the previous shot.

It is true that a photograph can tell a story, but a moment frozen in time can be quite deceiving, be that in nature photography or in other genres.
