I was going through some of my older images & I found this image of a Black-Crowned Night-Heron after it caught it’s breakfast. This was shot early in the morning as the sun was coming up. I was watching the Heron on the sticks and I was surprised that all of a sudden he lunged forward and came up with the fish for a meal. I was just watching the Heron so I was not ready for photographing the Heron catching it’s meal. But I got him as he straightened up.
That’s a great shot. It’s hard to imagine how the bird can eat a fish like that.
Thanks! Sometimes it takes a while to go down! Other times it disappears right away!
That’s a just-at-the-right-moment picture, all right.
Thanks! If you wait long enough hopefully you get a shot!
