I photographed this Great Egret with a Crayfish while at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I posted a photo of this same Egret a couple of days ago with a frog (Great Egret Eating Frog). This Great Egret was hunting in a ditch on the tour road and it didn't seem to care that I was parked across the road from it. Several people drove by and it continued to stay in the ditch near the road. These birds don't do this very often so I was lucky. I was able to spend several minutes photographing this Egret.
This area has been getting lots of rain the past few weeks and the roadside ditches have standing water in them. A large number of frogs and crayfish are in these ditches which are drawing in the wildlife to feed on them. I was surprised that I wasn't seeing Raccoons feeding in these areas. I'm sure they are at night and maybe I will see one on my next visit.
