Great Blue Heron on the Prowl

The Great Blue Heron is fun to watch and even more fun to photograph. This January I saw several of these birds fishing for their dinner. Just watching them on the prowl made me glad I wasn’t a little fish!

First, they move cautiously through the water and then they strain their long neck to see where the fish are swimming. Then, with the jerk of their head, they thrust their beak into the water and after the little fish. Once in a while, if the focus and light is right, you get an amazing photograph. I am still working on this but I am getting closer. In fact, I still have quite a number of photographs to go through still, but here are two that tease me of what is possible!
