A Great Egret with a small turtle it just caught.

As I watched and shot, I thought the Great Egret had caught a small fish. And when the Great Egret dropped what I thought was a fish, I thought it was an accident.

But now that I see that it is turtle, not a fish, my guess is that the Great Egret decided this turtle was a little too big to swallow and just dropped it.
