Superb action shot Himadri! That is one huge earth worm that egret caught.

I don’t think this is a cattle egret, unless they are called that over there. Really nice capture. Water droplets make it special. I believe it is a form of the Great Egret. Note the description of the great egret here, as compared to the intermediate:

Then neck and gape line also differentiate it from the intermediate egret.

Himadri, a great image of the egret with a meal in its bill. The water drops make it special. Excellent work!

perfect moment for the egret and you with the catch of the day, the droplets falling off is a plus, a beauty HIMADRI.

Himadri, lovely profile pose and nice hint of habitat.  The droplets falling off the prize catch and the glimmer from the side lighting is icing on the cake - very cool capture!

Great behaviour capture, Himadri! A lovely clear view of what could be a small snake? and a bonus with the swirling water droplets.

May be a snake. I try to find the ID of this snake or anything else.

I’m pretty sure it’s an eel.
