Gone Fishing!

While kayaking I noticed this Great Egret intently fishing along the shore and positioned my kayak upwind of the bird so that I could drift down on it without spooking it. As I got closed I noticed that it was about to strike so tried to catch it in mid motion. All I was able to capture of that was its head going in the water but then it jumped back with a fish in its beak and I was lucky enough to capture that complete with water droplets.

Location: Presa Allende, San Miguel de Allende, GTO Mexico
