What a capture, Eileen! In South Africa the egret's beak turns black during breeding season.

It must have posed for you.

Great set of shots!

Carver said...

That's an amazing sequence of the egret eating. Great shots.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Gulp!!!!! That egret is enjoying his dinner... Great pictures, Elieen. I'd much rather see an egret eating a snake than to see some pictures I saw last week on a blog of a snake eating some kind of big bird (Australia)... GAG!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Kate said...

Nice pics. :) Any bird that gets rid of snakes is okay by me!

DoanLegacy said...

Greetings from Juneau, AK!
Eileen, these are great shots. I love bird watching. I've never seen this type of bird in real life. They sure are fascinating.

Yes, the glacier on my header is the Mendenhall Glacier.:)
Have a great day!

What great catches!
Lucky you to be there at the right time to capture this :)!

A piece of news said...

No WAY! That's incredible that you caught that. It doesn't seem like it would be that common. Am I wrong? I'm really impressed!

mick said...

Great set of photos! It always amazes me how much those birds can get down all at once.

BirdingMaine said...

Excellent photos of the Great Egret! He surely has found a big enough meal to keep him full for a while.

Idaho Birder said...

I love it when a photographer captures an experience like that. Very cool!
