Snowy Egrets wade in shallow water to spear fish and other small aquatic animals. While they may employ a sit-and-wait technique to capture their food, sometimes they are much more animated, running back and forth through the water with their wings spread, chasing their prey. This one was quite animated, moving quickly. This shot was when it paused between the action. Also some of the other birds moved out of the way.
Snowy egrets are so lovely! Wonderful capture of the action and wide-open wings on this one.
Thanks! They are also fun to watch, darting around, looking for a meal!
