Reddish egrets are the Fred Astaire of birds. When fishing for food, they dance around in shallow water using the shadow of it's wings to reduce the glare on the water. They are very active and graceful when feeding. It's fun to watch them dancing around and then stabbing the fish. The above pictures are of a single egret that hangs out at the north beach marsh at Fort Desoto. I saw him there last summer and recently he has been back again. These were taken last weekend there. They are not very common to see in Florida so this guy has been photographed quite a bit.
