Perching over water among a bush's downy seeds, a Great Egret (Ardea alba) stares intently at the water below, watching small fish swim past.
I spent the morning photographing birds in the vicinity of this bush, hoping that an Egret would perch within the soft, feathery seeds. When this Egret flew in and then ruffled its feathers, it surpassed my expectations.
