Great Egret Catches A Fish

.

A Great Egret catches a nice fish.  Now the trick is getting it down with no hands and arms!

.

.

With a little tongue and beak maneuvering…..

.

.

To line it up….

.

.

And a tip back of the head and a neck stretch…..

.

.

Down the hatch!

.

.

The Great Egret makes it look so easy!

Sometimes after the swallow, they get a little thirsty.

.

.

A nice gulp helps wash everything down nicely.

.

.

Ah, refreshing…..

.

.

And then a figure-8 water shake-off!
