Skimming the surface

This is shot in february, the time when the little egret are still around..

a small group fishing at an oxidation pond.

see 3 different S shape of the neck.

see its breeding plumage, the two longish feathers behind its neck and more at the bottom of its neck.

It seems that the egret will scan the water for prey, when it sees one, it will take off from the bank

see, the beak in the water..

the action seems like the egret is walking on water

here is a succesfull strike

there are no more little egrets now at the oxidation pond, have to wait for next season..
