Great Blue Herons

I enjoy watching and photographing great blue herons. They are easy to find, easy to photograph and interesting to watch, particularly when they are fishing. The following photos were taken at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta, BC. While there were not as many there as we normally see, they were close to the trails, and that provided great opportunities to watch and photograph.

Striking for fish
Success! This juvenile heron actually caught four fish with this strike, three of which can be seen in this photo.
A better view of the four fish caught at once.
The act of swallowing!
