Great Egret





Great Egret

After my 1-2 hour walk in the morning, I usually drove around in a golf cart hoping to see something to photograph. One morning I stopped to watch a great egret hunting in a nearby ditch. It was a little hesitant about me parking less than 10 feet away but after a few minutes it ignored me completely and continued fishing. Since you can see a small fish in its beak in the second-last photo you can tell that it was successful. I assume it would take quite a few fish that size to fill this large bird.
