Great Egret catching a lizard, Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, Huntington Beach, California.

Thanks for the votes and comments! This was a quick shot, my friend and I were on our way back to our vehicle. Saw the egret doing his little moves, looked like he was getting ready to catch something, waited a minute or two, snapped several pictures when he caught the lizard.

It's weird how the lizard looks suspended in mid-air and mid-beaks. I can stare at this one for a long time, and have. Congrats on HM!

nicely captured moment and good focus, nothing to distract in the background, the out of focus rock in the foreground keeps drawing my eye, I may have cropped this out as it does little to help the image.
