Had the privilege this morning to witness an American White Egret at very close range (5-15ft) on the hunt for lizards…snaking it’s head when it spotted brunch hypnotizing the lizard just enough to get within striking range. This bird (they remind me they are today’s Raptors of prehistoric times) a very intelligent cunning predator. This bird was quit the hunter…within five minutes I followed & watched this bird capture and consume three out of four lizards it caught. The lucky one lizard was held at the tip of it’s peak and when the Egret tossed it up to swallow it the lizard captured the moment and kicked off from the peak to disappear in the foliage below. The bird went looking but with no success. This Raptor, I mean American White Egret has a very good batting average at least for today and I was honored to capture it on digital.
