The Fight For Food...

Although not a technically perfect photograph the action was just to much for me not to work the photo and post on the site. Taken at the Viera Wetlands, this Blue Heron spotted the Anhinga coming out of the water with a bass in his mouth and swooped in for the meal. He did not get the fish but neither did the Anhinga. It is amazing the photographs you can get at this place in just one afternoon, I can't imagine the photos I could get if I spent a few days there. I did get back one other day with my son for a couple of hours and he loved it. He is already talking about our next trip to Florida and wanting to spent more time there. I guess another trip is in the future, but maybe a week or two later so we can take in some baseball spring training camps as well.

Boy, you were on it at the exact moment. Hard to believe you captured it right as the Anhinga came up with the fish. I am glad you decided to share it.

Great action shot Brad. Always awesome to see an Anhinga with a freshly caught fish. BTW, like the silhouette below as well. Blue Skies.
