I was watching a Tricolored Heron fishing when the water was disturbed so I started shooting and got this sequence. It seems a cormorant under water was chasing a fish into shore and the tricolor was watching it come at him, Cormorant won. Kr with DAL 55-300

How interesting. That heron looks disgusted with the state of affairs there. Very cool that you got to capture the action.

Hi Hans,

Fine captures!!

I don't get many chances to see, much less catch interactions like this.

In #3, the heron looks to be huffing away, saying "nobody likes a showoff", while the cormorant is saying "It's a nice one -- hey -- check it out -- really. . .

Thanks Guys, it was a fun capture, and a lot of luck, it was getting a little dark or the IQ would have been better.
