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.

I took over 30 photos and selected six more from them to show how the egret handled his meal, holding it tight and then shifting it.
