The first image, while taken only a minute or two before the others, is not a part of this sequence. Life is rough.

But this Egret was stuffed. He was catching fish, like fish out of a barral. Low tide in a pool filled with fish. It doesn't get better than that!

Of course another title from the fishes point of view would be, "things can't get worse."

I was wondering about the lighting difference in that first photo till I read your text.

My favorites are the first and last photos in the series.

Nice stuff. Wish we had some of these great looking birds here.

Very nice #1 with the reflection and the water coming over his head.

These are great shots, good action, lovely color, the water splashes and drops add a whole lot.

This guy caught about fifty fish while I was watching. By the time of this last sequence he was actually fooling around with his food.

Rough on the "food"

Wonderful sequence dave. I especially like the catch on the last shot with
the little fish suspended in air just before the final gulp!
