Fish fry…

And by that I mean not fish fry as in oil in a pan but a fish fry as in little fish. Technically, this fish is past the fry stage but calling it anything else would just not have worked well with the alliteration.

This Egret went fishing not by diving from the air to pick up a big bass (as in the previous post) but by quietly and stealthily wading through the pond until an unaware little fish was snatched from the waters and deposited into the egret’s stomach. On a side note, notice the bright green around the egret’s eyes. I learned that this is its breeding color.

Have a great weekend and maybe do some fishing too?
