I just wrote an essay describing a scenic view from my study window. But I encountered a diction problem. Here's one of my sentences: "Sometimes, a flock of little egrets fly from the brook and alight on the branches of the trees, (A. providing, B. becoming, C. forming) a feast for the eyes. "
I am not sure which one is best for the sentence. Thank you.
Going with the metaphor of feast, I would say providing.
