Default Snowy Egret Fishing

From Tuesday in Green Cay Wetlands. The fish were minnows and were barely visible even when one was caught, egrets bill covered almost whole minnow.

I really don't know what to say, or better said I'm speachless, these are the sharpest and best shots I've seen from any egret.

F2.8 gives faster shutter speed but shallow dof. I was shooting at F8, Iso 400.
