Foraging Snowy EgretForaging Snowy Egret – Nikon D7100, f9, 1/1250, ISO 400, +1.0 EV, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light, not baited

I enjoy watching Snowy Egrets foraging for prey and I had the opportunity to do that up close last week at Glover Pond with this egret. I do wish I could have gotten a lower angle but there is a fence in front of the pond and getting out of the vehicle would have scared all the birds away. The adult Snowy Egret had jabbed its bill into the water to capture prey and came up empty but it sure made a splash.
