Great Egret

Ardea alba


Almost finished my walk when I came across this battle. A medium to large white egret with yellow beak and eyes and black legs, was determined to down this large frog, but the frog was not giving up without a fight. I took 70 images of this epic fight and those displayed highlight the nature of the struggle
