Great Egret III





She came up with a frog this time.
Turned and quickly downed it.
Quickly caught another one.

You can see something in her bill with a cropped-up view.

Such a beauty.

You should submit this for Weekend Reflections, it's perfect! I love to watch them walk, kinda dorky, but very effective at frogging and fishing.
