Egret Reflection

I have to admit that I stalked this egret for a week until it was within a close enough range to get a decent image.  The egrets are fascinating to watch.  They are the most patient birds when hunting for food.  They will wait and wait and wait until a small fish swims by, then with lightning speed, they dunk their heads and return with their meal.  I watched one egret that was laying its head on a branch, and thought it had taken a nap, but no, it was just waiting for the opportunity to grab lunch!


  1. Your stalking paid off. This is a beautiful and elegant photograph.

  2. Beautiful picture of a beautiful bird. The reflection in the water is perfect.
