Snowy Egret With Eel
This Snowy Egret caught an eel and because the eel was squirming, the egret couldn't get the eel into a position to swallow it. Tomorrow I'll post an image showing what happened next.
This is the follow-on to yesterday's photo. The Snowy Egret started flipping the eel into the air. In this photo, the egret caught the eel lengthwise in its beak and started gulping it down.

I spent about a half an hour watching two Great Egrets (Ardea herodias) fishing. Neither egret was having much luck. I thought the Egret's expression in this photo told the story.
