A Cattle Egret downing a long, thin snake.

It took about five minutes for the Cattle Egret to best the snake.

During the process, I failed to capture the funniest picture.

The Egret had almost downed the snake when the snake wrapped its tail around the Egret's neck.

When this happened I could see panic in the Egret's eyes as it quickly disgorged the snake to free itself.
