An Egret Fishing at Myrtle Beach, 10 October 2015

There was an egret fishing in this little inlet created when the tide rolled out Saturday morning. It started out in one section on the northern side of the pedestrian bridge, but flew away without catching anything.

Possibly the same egret showed up several minutes later, downstream from where it was first seen. I zoomed in to get a better look.

Finally its patience paid off as a school of fish showed up, first as a disturbance in the water, but then visible below the surface.

Observe its behavior once it catches a fish. As one might imagine, it’s easier to recapture a fish on land than in the water should it drop the fish.
