Little Snack For Little Guy

A snowy egret knocks back a tiny minnow that it just plucked from the salt marsh at low tide. If he manages to catch and eat enough of even these little bitty fish, snowball will get a decent meal out of it. 🙂

  1. It’s easy to fill up on hors d’oeuvres…I’ve done it often myself. Wonderful shot of the egret with that tiny fish. The angle helps us get a real sense of the relative sizes of the beak and the fish.

    • Yes it does seem like a lot of effort but sometimes going for quantity over quality is the smart move. He could sit and wait for hours for a bigger fish that may never come, or go right for it grabbing as many tiny fish as he can catch in a small amount of time. This guy went for the sure thing.
