Default The Art of Fishing...

This heron would jump up and flap his wings:






... to scare the fishes out of the water:






... and then went after the prey:






for a well deserved meal:

Great pictures and I also learned something new about bird and fish behaviour.

I'm a fly fisherman, but I haven't tried the Heron's methodology. I think I will try it...nothing embarrassing about learning new tricks of the trade from an old master.

Are they individual shots or is each one part of a burst? Your timing is perfect.

Wonderful shots! While I've taken some shots of the Tri-colored, I've never seen them canopy feed. In fact they are known for being deeper in the water then other Herons. Nice to see this little "dinosaur" bounce around like that!!!

Curious about my photography?
You may look up my small portfolio on the Norwegian photo-forum: http://walter_s.foto.no/ - click - "LATEST" on left bottom of page.
You may then click any thumbnail to view the picture and click again on the displayed picture for an unobstructed full screen view. Enjoy!

They are out of sequence, but this heron kept up this routine for a good 10-15 minutes so I got plenty of shots for the edit...

Thank you everyone

Nice captures (for both you and the bird).
