Great Egret Hunting In A Stream

After watching a Great Blue Heron Hunting in a stream I got a further surprise when I spotted a Great Egret working the same area.

This was in February and in addition to it being a dull day it was rather dark under the tree canopy and still pretty brown.

A bit of green reflection in the water gives a hint that winter was waning.

The Egret was successful finding a few small snacks.

He was encouraged by his success and continued along the bank.

  1. Beautiful reflection shots, Ellen! I’ve fell in love with canopy-shading and dark waters while in Florida. Something we don’t have much around the Chesapeake Bay.

      1. Well at least it is warming up, and you may get to have spring all over again :-). We are, thanks, a little stir crazy but blessed to have a yard and some woods to stare at and listen to!
