Reddish Egret Canopy Fishing
Reddish Egrets are always a joy to watch as they actively hunt and forage by making quick maneuvers to confuse fish and using their wings as canopies to create shade in order to lure fish. Birds are so amazing.
This Reddish Egret was dancing his way through the low tide.
The extreme focus these birds must have in order to catch each meal is humbling.

I have to imagine that the effort it required to catch a fish of this size, was more than the reward.
