Dancing Queen--Little Egret

Unlike the Night Herons, the Little Egrets are not patient fishermen. On the contrary, they are the liveliest of hunters which are often seen stalking their prey by running with wings raised to disturb small fish in the water. When I saw a group of Little Egret fishing the other day, I was fascinated by their artistic “dancing” moves. 












Even when they are in flight, they never fail to amuse me with their elegant plumage and graceful postures.
