Here’s a great egret catching a crayfish on Grayson Creek.

On my way home from work, I often see one of these big white herons stalking crayfish and frogs in the tidal marsh area at the Martinez Marina offramp off northbound 680 at the south end of the Benicia Bridge. They just walk slowly along in the water, head cocked, eyes focused, until … BAM! Another frog or crayfish dinner goes sliding down the inside of that long neck. Great photos! /Gary
