14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Lost In Thought

This Reddish Egret (rarest of the egret species) was trying to eat this rather large fish for its size and all of a sudden it dropped the fish. Since my camera was photographing this Reddish Egret trying to eat the fish I was able to capture this split moment in time. Its facial expression has that 'lost in thought look"
