Did you wait around for those shots or were you just in the right place at the right time?

Not in one place. Much searching before I got the green heron on the glass divider doing the catching. The sparrow was right on a tree in the place where I got the shot for the catch. I don't know whether it witnessed the catch, but I presume it did because the sparrow is smart all the time.

I believe that second one isa Bittern based on it's head and neck colorings... not sure what type of Bitterns you have over in your neck of the world.... we have mainly Least Bitterns in Minnesota.

I really like the setting you captured the first one in.

The heron belong to the water most of the time; for food capture. This time on a branch with much green on the background. I was lucky enough to be in the right place for it. A lesson I got from this shot: Wait and have patience.

By the way, the attached is the original shot. I have cropped a little bit to produce the first one on the top of this column.
