A crane by another name...


I just can't believe this photo.  And no, I didn't photoshop the neck!  It's all egret.  Fish have a long slide down that gullet.  I have a lot of elegant egret photos. I snapped this at Lover's Key State Park in Florida.  But this one has the honor of being the funniest.

so strange, it really looks like very long neck. Maybe it is related to a giraffe. :) No, kidding. :)

How the heck did you get that shot? And you didn't photoshop it? I'm simply amazed! :-)

Nice photo!
It's even more amazing when you see the size of some of the fish they swallow!
