This Tricolored was out one morning doing the typical hunting dance. Drama and comedy at the same time.
Spreading their wings makes a shadow over the water and helps them spot prey. Even early light out here can cause a glare.
They also dance around kicking their feet (like a Snowy Egret) to flush out anything in the mud.
I need to be shooting before they go for a fish, lightning fast.
When the show is over they exit with a strut.
