A Snowy Egret stopped by to grab a little lunch at the Cypress Boardwalk at Orlando Wetlands Park. Fortunately for me, I got photograph the whole thing.
The Egret circled around the pond north of the boardwalk, swooping high and low. Then it came down close to the lake, dragging its yellow feet across the water. A second or two later, it plunged into the lake and pulled out what looked to be a little bream.
The Snowy Egret brought it’s lunch to the boardwalk rail. After a few seconds, it swallowed the little fish in a big gulp.
This is the animal kingdom’s version of fast food.
Here’s the story in photos:
