Green Heron Catching Dinner

Late afternoon into the early evening can be great light if things work out for photographing wildlife. A fellow photographer joined me on this trip. She joined me in kayaking this body of water.

First, I saw this green heron catch a dragonfly to eat. There are lots of dragonflies at this location. One even landed on my zoom lens and parked for a little while.

These may not be all the same fish. I actually watched him catch a few fish in not a long time period.

First, he spears it.
Then, he manoeuvres it around to swallow it.

I can’t believe such a small bird was eating all these fish in a small time frame.

Thanks you green heron for showing me your catch!

It is amazing what you can see if you get outside and go slow. My friend heard him before we saw him. If you go fast, or have on earphones etc. you may miss a lot. Slow down and enjoy nature!
