Egret Fishing Close…Too Close
Last week I was watching this egret walking along the side of the marsh pond close to where I was standing when it suddenly struck at the water and came up with a fish. Often the issue is that the wildlife action takes place a bit too far away to get decent shots, but in this case the egret was too close. I couldn’t fit the top of the bird’s head and the bottom of the fish in my frame and I didn’t have time to back up before it gulped down the fish. Well…I suppose I shouldn’t complain, earlier in the week I spent an entire frustrating morning where nothing came close to my location!
