Vole: “Ummm..can we talk about this??”

One of 250 frames I took, over a two-minute span, of this encounter between a Great Egret and a vole, Nov. 20, 2015, at the Ridgefield NWR.  This frame was about halfway through the sequence. It was very nice (photographically speaking) of the egret to stay in this exact profile position through the consumption phase.

VIEW LARGE!  Then once on Flickr, click again once to zoom in even closer (if you dare).

Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1600, f4.5, ISO 200, 500mm, 9:57 a.m.
