Macro Monday – Gone Fishin’

Great Egret gone fishing at Fort Desoto Park, Pinellas County, Florida

There’s a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot.

While having a picnic lunch at the Arrowhead picnic area located at Fort Desoto Park, Tierra Verde, Florida in Pinellas County, we saw this Great Egret fishing for his own lunch. He could care less that I was there taking photos which is great for me but scary in that the birds are not afraid of humans at all in this area.

We were there on an absolutely beautiful day in January, 2020 before COVID-19 landed us at home and unemployed. Traveling from Jacksonville to Tampa for a late Christmas visit with the kids and grandkids proved to be a perfect winter day with temperatures in the 80’s with blue skies.
