Little Egret with fish

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

I followed this male Little Egret around with my camera for four days. I placed my beanbag on the ground, camera and lens resting on it (with me lying down on my stomach), well over a hundred times before finally capturing that elusive shot with a fish in his bill.
