Great White Egret hunts in the river shallows below the rapids. (S)he seems to be a solitaty bird, and spends an hour or two here most days.

very slender beak and neck, Ray. i guess the diet does not include too big fish from this river?
Ray: Iff they get fat then they cannot fly, Ayush! smile
Jolie aigrette très élégante. J'aime la vue autour d'elle.

They seem to have a lot of patience. I suppose if they don't stay still, they will frighten off the fish.
Ray: Yes...must be careful. These onse have yellow toes which look like worms when they riggle them, and so they do this to attract little fish.

It’s all happening down there in the river.
Ray: I am making good use of that river, Chad.

They are such elegant birds Ray. I am liking your current presentation too

What a fine image Ray.

The falls make a great background for this beautiful bird.

Nice shot
Ray: Thank you, Anne.
Oh, beautiful, Ray!
Ray: Part of my daily habbit is to sit in the garden and watch her, Elizabeth.
Good shot Ray, Egrets live near me in the U.K. but I haven't managed to get any shots of them.
Ray: Egrets are very common in Thailand, too, Frank...lovely birds.
Yet another fine shot, Ray!
Ray: I am pleased that you are liking them, Tom.
