This is a snowy egret hunting. It scrunches up like this and then lunges forward with its beak to pluck a small fish out of the water. i've got shots of that but i just took them today so it'll be awhile before i can post them

Hi Tom,
Lovely capture of this Snowy Egret! Well timed and captured, the sharpness and details are excellent and the reflections on the water are superb! Well done and TFS

Hi Tom.
Love the composition with the pose and reflection. Lighting and detail great. I see a ripple in the water over in front of him, I can imagine that might be the fish he is ready to lunge for. Great stalking pose and concentration on his face.
Wonderful behavior image
