When walking the beaches in Florida, it is common to see a Snowy Egret wading the shoreline for little fish. This Snowy Egret decided to take the easy way out and stalk a fisherman’s bait bucket while the man was occupied with his fishing rod in the surf. The bird slowly approached, climbed on, looked around, then peered in. Sadly, this bucket was empty. Hey, Mr. Fisherman, time to throw out that cast net again.
I had fun watching this sneaky bird and capturing the moment. I think it makes an amusing composite poster found at my Zazzle store, Nature Pix.
