On October 14, 2017, I saw a little egret in the canal that runs around my neighborhood. It was hunting by shaking a leg to drive prey from vegetation in the shallow water. As I was returning on foot from a long photo walk, my camera was ready. I was able to shoot a few minutes of video before the bird walked away up the canal.
I also took several photos, but still photography cannot show the egret’s quick leg movements.
Video and photos were shot hand-held with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera and a 40-150mm F2.8 PRO lens.
