I was watching this GBH last fall as it waded across a shallow bay.

1. This is the Stalk.

3. The fish. I'm amazed at how skillful these birds are at snatching itty bitty minnows. Cheers, Dan

Thanks Roger. I was wondering the same thing. I guess it's the magic of evolution. Cheers, Dan

I thought the Herons would not be hunting yet this time of the year (in Ottawa) until I saw that you took these last fall.
Nice catch of the bird and you

The ones here are fishing all day long. That is a nice shot, but hardly seems worth the effort to catch that small a fish.

Good shootin' Dan. I'm amazed at a Herons patience when fishing.

Probably just an appetizer. :-)

Thanks Daniel, Tom and Don. Cheers, Dan
