The Catch, Great Egret

The Catch, Great Egret

This prey, no matter the size, did not give up easily. The bird was under water and splashing for a long time.

When I first spotted the Egret he was just standing at the edge of an old rice field. Moving slow watching the water.

In a split second he dove right down, not a typical quick grab.

The fish must have kept slipping away because the Egret stayed under splashing around.

I never did get a clear view of what he caught but from behind it didn’t look all that big.

At the end he was pleased with himself so it must have been good.
