Reddish Egret with a snack. Although this Egret is known for its canopy style hunting, in this case it had not been using its wings. The angle of the sun seemed to have provided clear visibility into the water without the need of extra shading from the wings. Photographed at J. N. “Ding” Darling NWR on Sanibel Island, Florida, March 2015. Canon 7D Mk II using a 500mm IS II lens on a tripod.
