A Snowy Egret with a Mosquitofish that it caught in its bill.

I'm ever amazed as I watch birds this size catch Mosquitofish.

Why do they bother - the fish is so small it must take a 100 of them to make a meal.

But what skill to catch a fish this small, as it darts beneath the surface of the water.

I'm ever amazed.
