landing. I wish I had more reach. ...
though if you did, you'd also have a narrower angle of view; that would make it harder to find your subject, and exclude some of what you captured, particularly in the first picture. I thought they were great pictures as-is; you could crop and enlarge, perhaps, if you want to "get closer" to something.

I'd have guessed echinoderm, off the top of my head.
I wouldn't want an echinoderm on top of my head. If you look closely at the dark tips of the small projections off of the major "arms" they appear to be feathery, which inclined me to think they are zooids. Unfortunately the IQ is insufficient to resolve them adequately to be certain.

The Heron didn't want any competition while feeding at the pond so he decided to eject the Egret.

Out of My Pond, Now

Now, time to get back to breakfast.
