DANCE OF THE EGRET

Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
The reddish egret is the rarest egret species found in North America. When fishing, this dancing egret sprints across the lagoon, weaving drunkenly while simultaneously flicking its broad wings in and out. At times, the bird will raise its wings forward over its head, creating a shadow on the water. It then freezes in this position for minutes attracting fish to this patch of shade, thus allowing them to catch their next meal.
