Reflections of a Snowy Egret

During my time in Florida, I would often see Snowy Egrets (Egretta thula), but it was usually as they would fly away. They seemed a thousand times more skittish than any other birds I was seeing in Florida, which was unfortunate because they really are pretty birds.

But one evening as I was hiking along the Apoxee Trail, I happened to be in a position where I was almost completely hidden by trees but had just enough of an opening to be able to watch this individual hunting along the opposite shoreline…. the perfectly still black water made for some stunning photos.
