Great Egret Stalks A Lizard

A stalking Great Egret was quicker than I.  I saw it focused, but the egret was looking straight ahead and not down at the water’s edge.

What was he focused on?

A couple more steps, and the Great Egret reached out with that long neck and grabbed a lizard off a palm tree trunk.

The Great Egret had the lizard before I got my first shot.
