What A Catch...


You guessed it more birds and it comes from the Viera wetlands in Florida. I hope you like birds because this time of year that is about all I am photographing. Since I have started photographing birds just over a year ago I have gained considerable knowledge about them. I have also found that I like birding very much and find it pretty relaxing. Of course photographing them just adds more fun to it. This Blue Heron caught this fish before we showed up. The lighting was not the best as it was late afternoon and he was back lit. He was reluctant to look towards us also, but I will take what is offered to me. We watched him for some time often stopping and dipping the fish into the water, I am shore he eventually ate it but we were short on time and didn't get to stay for the feast.

You know that they say," More than a mouthful is a waste."? I don't know who they are though.

What a catch! I'm always amazed at the size of fish they swallow!

You captured the action, Brad. I like the photos very much. I used to mostly shoot portrait type photos of wildlife, but now I try more and more to capture the special moments and it is difficult.

Its hard to imagine that big fish sliding down that skinny neck! Excellent capture Brad; only sorry that you didn't get to photograph the swallowing.
