Seafood Dinner: Appetizers…Then The Main Course
I was watching this snowy egret enjoying the seafood buffet in the salt marsh a while back.
First he ordered up appetizers: A nice fresh shrimp, a crunchy little crab, then a tasty minnow.
Finally the main course arrived, the catch of the day prepared just how he likes it, fresh out of the water.
You could tell he was quite excited with his meal too, as he got all fluffed up when it was served!
They truly are like humans when speaking the language of food. Great sequence.
That fluffed up look is probably what I look like when the waiter puts down my meal.
It’s always nice to have an appetizer before the main course!
That’s how I like to enjoy a nice dinner out too! 🙂
Wow, he did really well for himself. What a feast! Great shots, Phil. Love the fluffy feathers. 🙂
It’s perfect for when you just can’t decide what you want… a little bit of everything! 🙂
I think I’m going to eat out dinner with him!!! Love seafood….and, he has good choices!!
He has the right idea for sure! Gotta love the seafood combo!
Very nice Phil
I’m glad you liked seeing Snowball!
Fine dining at its best!
He eats better then me! 🙂
Love that very dark blue water in contrast to the white of the Snowy.
Thanks, sometimes it can be tough with a bird that is so white keeping detail in the feathers but not letting the background go too dark. Glad you liked seeing Snowball!
I always enjoy your sequences Phil however it is the individual shots that standout for me and the last shot complete with catch – the egret perfectly contrasted against the water and the eye clearly focussed on dinner
Love this series! Beautiful egret capture.
Nice shots! What kind of fish (it looks big) is caught here? Does she really swallow that whole unlucky thing wriggling all the way as well?!
