I Get It

"I Get It"  Photo by Judy Royal Glenn

As I was photographing an egret on the beach, I noticed the egret was very close to a few people and not flying away.  After observing awhile longer, I said, "I get it."

A father and son had a cast net, and the son was trying to catch fish.  The egret was waiting patiently in hopes of getting an easy meal.  I introduced myself to Anthony, Gavin's father, and I told Gavin to toss the egret a fish.

  The egret would cautiously creep up and get the fish because Gavin was standing very close.

I had a delightful time watching this story unfold before my eyes.  The egret was happy because he enjoyed an effortless breakfast, and you can see the smile on Gavin's face:)


  1. What a wonderful series of photos! And that's one happy egret.

  2. It always surprising to see the egrets that are so tame. Such a striking elegant bird! These wonderful photographs brought a big smile to my face.
