Greetings from Saskatchewan
(who is thinking re above bird "stay away from my ponds ;)
Hi Pam! Thanks for visiting the heron. He is quite happy here on the west coast, so your pond is safe. I have a whole sequence of him waiting, pouncing and eating this fish. I waited with him for an hour or more before this action happened. The fish went down the hatch with no problems! We wade in this water all the time, I've never seen such a large fish right on the beach like that.
Nice grab - but does he have the proper license?
Keith, I was unable to check his paperwork, as he ate the evidence. An Iolar -- he disappeared behind a rock for a moment after catching the fish and I thought he'd lost it! But he came back into view with the fish reversed so it would go down head first. Whew!
very nice... good shot!
A very good shot in the perfect moment.
pretty nice shot! that heron looks like he'd say "hehehehehe - thats a nice dinner"
Beautiful shot Nawitka!
Wonderfully animated. I love the fact you got him mid step!
super wow! Great catch, I mean you with the camera!
Thank you jgevans -- yes I had time to spare that day and was super lucky -- of course he had a lucky day too!
