An Egret catches a fish

Eastern Great Egret with catch, White-faced Heron in background.
I live just near Giralang Pond, a small artificial pond on Ginninderra Creek. The outflow from the small weir that creates the pond is a favourite haunt of White-faced Herons and Eastern Great Egrets, especially after a bit of rain. Yesterday I found an Eastern Great Egret struggling with a rather sizable catch.
