Great Egret after snagging a fish


In this sequence of images, I spotted two great egrets flying out over the lake and was taking pictures of them when one of them pealed off and flew back in my direction. It had spotted a fish in the water and was diving down to get it. I didn’t get the moment of capture, but, in the image above, as it is taking off again, you can see that was successful and there is something in its beak. It then returns to its original flight path.
