“I’ll Have The Shrimp!”
Late this afternoon, just as I was about to leave for the day, I saw this egret in the salt marsh come up with a huge shrimp.
This was not just the biggest shrimp I ever saw a bird catch in the salt marsh, it was the biggest shrimp I ever saw anywhere!
The egret must have struggled with that shrimp for a good 20 minutes, but sure enough, he got it swallowed and down. I’m guessing this was the most shrimp that egret ever ate at one time.
Talk about a shrimp platter… that shrimp was as big as a platter. 🙂
