I shot several images of Great Egrets fishing around a salt marsh in the coastal SC USA area this past week, but this one was my favorite. Why? Well normally I see them catch smaller fish, or the bird is farther out then I would prefer. This one I saw close by and I particularly liked the way the early morning sunlight lit up the fish displaying some rainbow hued colors.
