Great Blue Heron Hunting

Great Blue Herons are amazingly patient hunters. They will stand perfectly still for incredible periods of time waiting for the right moment to strike at their prey. With small fish, they’ll just swallow them and keep hunting. With larger fish, once caught and under control, they will work their way to the bank and enjoy a full meal. The following photos capture the entire sequence, minus the eating part.
