Great Egret Other Day

That's the whole tomato there...flight, water drops, and a score for the Egret.
Chris,

“The whole tomato”?


The whole “Shebang” is one of the most common forms of this “The whole....”, expression, together with “The whole enchilada”, “The whole caboodle” and “The whole thing”!

However, I couldn’t as yet, find any use of “The whole tomato” before you used it here!

Language customs are fluid and evolve! Perhaps there is a relation to tomatoes used in the red spicy sauce sometimes added to enchiladas in the
“Whole enchilada”

....and then it would be a “metonym” in which part of a thing, represents the entire thing, such as the phrase, “The Kremlin” represents “The Russian government officialdom and power structure”!


So I wonder if you found “The whole tomato” in use, or made it up?

Late breakfast !

Don,

As Chris points out you have such a complete and perfect scene!

I love it too! We see the birds behavior and success and flight out of the water!

It’s beautiful and better than an Audubon drawing, as this bird is still very much alive!

It is a commonly used term in this part of North Florida. I guess it is because we eat a lot of "mater" gravy on buttermilk biscuits.

I’m impressed with the 7D! I have one too! The 100-400 II IS, doesn’t lengthen when focused, so one can use circular polarizers! How is it with extenders? What about birds in low light in the trees?
