Egret Reflections Study 2

Egrets spend a lot of their time foraging for food (fish, crayfish, snails, insects). The beach tide pools are a perfect hunting ground for small fish. It's fun to watch the birds hunt… they stand very still in the shallow water waiting for their prey to swim by. When they do make the "strike", it is fast and precise.

This gives me such an ocean feel. I love that. We've watched herons fish like that, and it's magnificent to watch. Beautiful painting.
