It was just too dim and I could not nail the heron when it was flying away from me

Nice catch on the immature Great Blue Heron, Daniel - you don't often see one "canopy feeding" like this (using the wings to cast a glare reducing shadow for better visibility below the surface). I have seen a Snowy Egret do this too (and there was recently posted a picture of one), but it is the preferred method of hunting only for the Reddish Egret here in North America (there are others elsewhere).

Great to see your fine photos again! Wonderful color & composition on the Gull, and great behavior shots on the egret!
