Reddish Egret Downs Lunch 54738

Gettin' it down the hatch while the gettin's good

The egret drove off the thieving gull, which found the fish too big for it
to handle anyway, and the egret finally got the fish safely put away.
Safely for the egret, not so safely for the fish however. :)

1/800s f/6.3 at 300.0mm iso100 full exif
