I photographed this Great Egret Swallowing a Sunfish at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

How I Got The Photo:

This bird was in an area known as Lower Scarborough. Lower Scarborough is located next to Miner’s Cove on the west side of the auto tour road. You turn right when you get to the four corners intersection and Miner’s Cove is on the left. Go a short distance to another body of water and this is the Lower Scarborough.

I had my camera resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
