Little Hunter

Birds seem to really like the weather right now.  I'm seeing all kinds of them out and about, singing and chirping and hopping and flying.  This little egret, though, wasn't doing any of that.  He was hunting insects.  Imagine wearing your whitest whites on a hunting expedition!  I captured this shot when he was kind enough to strike a pose (although I think he was still in hunting mode).

I dunno...this critter doesn't look too happy! Wonderful capture...they can be hard to get up close.

Hope you're free of rain and having a great day!

He looks a little perturbed about something.

Gotta find a lot of bugs to fill that tummy.

I think he was posing, SRQ.

What a great shot and capture of this smart-looking fellow... I am amazed that he held still long enough for you to grab that shot - excellent!

Hope that you have a wonderful week ahead!
