Lucky Crawdad!

_71A3020

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No! It’s a flying crawdad!

It only took a moment for the great egret to snatch this crawdad from the bottom of the pond. There was a splash, water droplets everywhere, the crawdad was in the egret’s mouth and then inexplicably it managed its flying escape.

This image was captured on a warm spring day at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge in northern California.
