Snowy Egret in flight dipping beak into water

Buy this picture

This Snowy Egret was gliding over the water going down to dip its beak in the water. It seems like it was getting a sip of water. It looks so elegant sailing across the air, dipping its head up and down into the water. Perhaps it was feeding on small aquatic animals, but I usually see them wading in shallow water to spear fish or shellfish to feed. This Snowy gave me a nice show!
