Are you sure that's a Blue Heron? I thought they had long necks. That looks more like an owl but I don't think they fish. A closer zoom and higher shutter speed would help.

Remember, no more than two postings per day and a max of two photos per posting.

Carter,

Tough shot to execute. The low lighting makes it even more difficult. Composition isn't as good because the bird is almost out of the frame.

That is a Blue Heron. They pull their head back so that their neck makes an S shape. You can see the bottom curve of the S below the long beak.
