This Common Egret stares down his sharp beak at potential prey below. Egrets are such stunningly beautiful birds with their delicate, white plumage--but undoubtedly are also terrific hunters. The intensity of this bird's eyes speak volumes as to how serious he (she?) is about the hunt. I captured this image in southern California during the spring of 2010.
