Great Egret (Ardea alba) and Canada goose
Egrets are such elegant looking birds, don't you think. The great egret was quietly fishing in shallow water, slowly bending for a better look. Then with surprising speed this bird bent down and...
caught a fish. A little more than a century ago egrets were nearly hunted to extinction - their feathers were used as hat plumes - but they are making a comeback.
