Big Red Canopy Feeding

image

The Reddish Egret is an interesting
feeder, vigorous to the point of humor,
it’s wings like an umbrella held out and up,
hunting tiny minnows in it’s own shadow,
wobbling, apparently erratic, on rubber knees,
a drunken sailor bird, in actuality
every movement perfectly controlled
by a deadly focus on its prey.
