The Hungry Great Egret.

I caught this one walking on a dock, I knew he was up to something.

Swish! Even at 1/500 second, it still didn't freeze him!

This is what his lunch looked like.

Mmm, appetizing lunch. Very nice second shot. I imagine they have to move very quickly to catch their meal.

In the first shot it looks as if he's dancing to some unheard music!

Jeesh Steve, you caught him with a cramp in his leg! Either that or an itch.

Can't say enough about how much I love these birds.

Gretchen said...

Great shots! You could see the bird was in stalking mode! :)

Kerri said...

What a fabulous capture!! As if he was trying to "sneak up" on the fish!
Oh I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see one of these big guys around here!

Great shots Steve, I love the close up. Herons are a real passion of mine and you have really caught the essence of the bird. Cheers, Tony
