A Great Egret and its shadow hunting for Mosquitofish in Duckweed covered water.

It's a wonder that these birds can find such small fish under the Duckweed cover. I guess they look for movement and strike.

But when I watch these birds hunt, I look for movement but I never see any movement.

Perhaps these birds just see better than me. Or perhaps they just know when there is an out of sight fish under the surface.
