This young Egret stayed balanced on the branch here. I don’t think the water was very deep but it was thick with duck weed.
I had assumed this bird would fly off as I approached. At first I hadn’t even set my camera, I was more a spectator.
No fish were caught. But he was patient and determined to sit on this branch.
Based on the bill and legs this was a young bird, which might be why I was allowed to get this close.
