The Egret Dance

Some day I will remember to video the dance and not shoot just stills.

For anyone who has not seen this let me explain just how foolish this can be.

A big white bird jumps in the air and screams a loud ‘croak’.

Landing in the water they do the Michael Jackson ‘moon walk’ backwards (or forwards depending on how you look at it).

Egrets knees bend forward, not back, so the dance and wiggling toes stir up something to eat.

The loud croaking is probably because it’s so much fun.
