daily painting | boat-hopping egret

It’s lovely to live on the water and happen upon these moments. I see egrets pretty much daily, and they are so beautiful and graceful, carefully and delicately moving through shallow waters looking for lunch (or landing on up-turned boats on the dock). The pure white of their feathers always makes me stop in wonder. One time I watched a bird snag a small crab and that feisty shellfish won the life-and-death battle. Too much trouble. Back into the drink it went.
