LOL! How do you deal with such an interloper? From what I've seen, the snowy egrets around SoCal are pretty fearless. Love the pictures!

Yes, my daughter and son-in-law have tried all kinds of methods to protect the koi in their pond...but have lost some battles. Nice shots.

Thanks Harriet and Walter for the comments.

We even had a Great Blue Heron sample the fare once, but Black Crowned Night Herons are the worst offenders there, Walter - they cleaned out our Koi and Goldfish years ago. A friend had to cover his small pool with hardware cloth to protect his Koi from them. We only keep small Gambusia now to eat mosquito larvae - those were what the Snowy was catching - nearly cleaned us out.

I don't think I'd like to have one of those on top of my roof. Sharp images and great exposure.

Indeed, sharp images and spot on exposure. I know how tricky these are, Penolta.

I particularly like photo #2
