    The fish eating egret - Nova Friburgo - 1 out of 4

    Hi, fellows. I went to Nova Friburgo last Sunday, with my family. We visited the local country club. Here are some shots of a great egret having a fresh tilapia as a lunch. There is more to come, as I divided the images in 4 threads (I hope they will not be boring to you!). C&C welcomed. Thanks for viewing.

    1 - Warming up!

    4 - ...carefully...

    5 - ...landing...

    It's all been said, but worth repeating, excellent shots! We all can dream of such an opportunity, and that we could pull it off so well!!
