Wildlife Photo: Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) Okinawa, Japan
As many types of white egrets as there are, this one stands out as being the only species on Okinawa having a black bill, black legs and distinctive yellow feet.
They eat insects, frogs, snakes, shells and small fish and may often be seen doing a little dance to stir things up in shallow waters along the coast.
When they see me coming in my yellow flip flops they don't mind me taking pictures of them. But, when I get in the water and start dancing like them, they don't like it and fly away.
So, now you know what a Little Egret looks like and why I gave up dancing.
