But, just go fishing on Florida's East coast, and the Great Blues and Egrets will join you in the boat; they have learned that your bait tank is a source of fish

   After docking, and during clean up the Great Blue flew onboard - 33-21.jpg
   Great Blue was but 3 meters from me - 37-21.jpg
   Another shot of the Great Blue standing on the bait tank - 36-21.jpg

   VERY closeup of the egret - also standing on the bait tank - 30-21.jpg
