Been a little light on Heron photos lately :-)Thought I would post a couple.

I watched this one for a while staring intently but never moved. I eased around and past it and heardthe splash. Got caught on the wrong side of sun (again) but the right side for the fish anyway.

It was the pain that had frozen the eye balls. Survival the fittest, the rule of the game in the wildlife. Poor little fish!

Mountain Hawk, thanks for the comment. Had better light anglefor#2:-)



Jake...I think you could be right, it does look a little unhappy.



wk7leung.....absolutely! Survival of the fittest or the prolific.....which is what those Green Sunfish are. Probably not in much danger of being wiped out by the Herons. Reality does look harsh at times. Thanks for looking.

Here is a shot of a green heron exhibiting his catch before swallowing it. There are still enough fish for them to prey on in the natural environment. Their real threat is, however, fromenvironmental pollution that endangers the livelihood of the fish, making them difficultto befound inthe natural environment. This is especially the case in Hong Kong where environmental protection, though much talked about, is not much practised among theentrepreneur in the industrial sectors.

Instead of doing spearfishing, he is doing 'clipping-tongs' fishing this time.
