Egret, Immersed in Autumn

I watched patiently as this solitary egret, perched on a distant stump in a shallow pond, groomed in the morning sun.


After the longest time – I know it preened every single feather on its body – it glided into the water to hunt.






Speculating on this image, it appears that both the egrets bill and meal became entangled in a piece of submerged debris.
