This Great Egret was catching Shad near the Great Blue Heron with the fishing lure stuck in its foot (Heron Eating Well With An Injury). This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
How I Got The Photo: Great Egret With Shad
I was sitting on a chair that I carry with me in my pickup when I know I will be sitting for a long time photographing something. I was sitting in an area near the bridge that is close to the entrance to the auto tour road.
This Great Egret landed next to a Great Blue Heron I was photographing.
I had my bean bag on a guard rail supporting my camera and lens.
