Egret Fishing

I photographed so many birds today, but decided the fishing action shots were the ones to show. Note that the lake is very low during this dry season, even though it rained off and on all day today. ? Here’s the five steps a Great Egret took:

Patiently stands motionless for many minutes waiting for a fish to swim by . . .
Jump – Fly – Splash – Blur!
Got it! And a mouthful of grass! 🙂
Somehow he/she shakes out the grass and there’s the fish!
Start all over! Waiting for another fish.

¡Pura Vida!
