    Yes little minnows, but he is fast! I used my 200-400mm F.4 Nikkor lens with a 1.4x tc. I was able to get to the water edge with my tripod 18" above the water level.

    Great shots! I love these guys. You can spot them a mile away by the little dance they do to scare, herd, and catch the minnows. The other large egrets and herons don't do that, they just stalk and spear 'em. These actions shots illustrate that nicely. Good job.

    Personally whilst the last has the best use of depth of field over the bird its not the most interesting pose = the first two have fantastic poses - almost as if the bird is dancing!
    great shooting!

    Great angle to them.. The eye contact in the last is what sets it off for me.

    Great work Eric!!!!
