Seems to be some debate as to whether the Great Egret was eating a snake or an eel in this post. I have received comments on both this site and via email as to what others think it was. It is basically split with 15 thinking northern water snake and 14 thinking it was an eel.
I have enhanced and zoomed into the subject as best as possible, but because of the foggy conditions of that morning, I can only do so much.
Here are some more pictures that I worked with to the best of my ability. Please post any comments that you have at the end of this article under “Leave a passing comment »”.
