Stalking with Elegance

.

When it’s low tide at the Everglades NP Gulf Coast location, a small beach exposes at the far end of the bulkhead.

While I was sitting on the bulkhead by that beach a mid-afternoon, a Snowy Egret came around the bend and towards me along the beach, stalking for fish in the small incoming waves.

Sitting very still, I waited; and not for long.  The Snowy Egret was on the move and was quickly right in front of me.

I know the egret had to see me, but it didn’t give any indication acknowledging my presence.  It just continued it’s stalking.

Not missing a beat, the Snowy Egret continued on past me, searching for more.

I think this is when I started breathing again. 😉
