It looks like a good day for fishing by the pond!

Good catch. You and the heron. Nice shot.
The last time I had a chance to have an in flight shot, I was just away for a couple of minutes.

Love it! Excellent capture (as always). All these fabulous bird photos have made me far more aware of birds in general, and how few species I actually see, and how hard it is to photograph the few I actually do see! I'm amazed and impressed with how good your photos are.

Thanks!

I watched the Heron with this Pumpkin Seed Sunfish and it kept moving it a bit at a time in its beak, until the fish was facing head first, and then swallowed it in one gulp. It amazed me that the slippery fish could be maneuvered around like that without being dropped using only the beak of the Heron.

I watched the bird for over an hour fishing in the pond.

Hi,

Great shot very expressive. That heron was sure hungry.

Great shot ennacac,Catching a heron when it is fishing takes skill and patience. Herons are one of my favorite birds to shoot. I got this one on Shoal Creek south of Joplin, Mo. with the Promaster 70-300 on my DL. The Goose was an added bonus.

Tom,

You really have the timing ... between the heron, the fish, & the water lily!! You sure know how to use the rule of 3's!!!

Great shot as always!
