I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
This egret was standing along the edge of the water in the marsh yesterday afternoon when his little friend suddenly popped his head up out of the water to make a surprise appearance.
Always nice when friends drop by! 🙂
Great shot, Phil. Best of friends for sure. 😃
Oh yeah, they are friends from way back. Thanks much Sylvia!
Made me remember the saying:
“With friends like that, who needs enemies…”
I searched on the internet to find out if alligator’s eat egrets, because I wasn’t sure if they did or not. Ummm…apparently they do.
Hey thanks so much for looking and commenting I greatly appreciate it!
Yes an alligator could potentially take an egret but he would have to be especially stealthy and the bird would have to be not paying attention. 🙂
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
I think the egret would be alert any sign of danger he will fly off to safety.
You do you good-looking friends.
Always good to have friends in low places!
Just seeing the gator in the image is unnerving, I find it incomprehensible the egret can be so calm.
