Egret with snake

I am visiting my good friend Sheila in Florida right now. Last night we were out in a wetland area and we saw this white egret trying to kill and eat a snake. We were very close to this huge bird and yet it did not seem too concerned about us watching him.

Today we are going to butterfly world. I will be back at my desk on Weds. Dan is holding down the fort for me while I am away.
