水路のダイサギ / Great Egret in a waterway
I saw a Great Egret (a. a. modesta) in the distance of an agricultural canal. It was engrossed in searching for its prey and was not paying much attention to me. I sat on the edge of the canal and hid behind a camouflage net, and it came closer.
It was moving toward me, so I anticipated where it would stick its beak and prepared for the opportunity by placing the focus ahead. It poked its head out in a good position.
Got a fish. It's not a place that seems to hold very big fish.
It paced back and forth, looking for its prey, but not catching much.
Another chance to get a closer shot.
It got its prey together with the water plants. It was even smaller than before, and this would not fill its stomach.
<<KK An extra reflection photo. It may look like a fish, but it's more like an arthropod like a wharf roach, isn't it?
