One Great Blue Heron fishing, and one cooling off on a hot day.
Lens: 55-300 PLM WR RE Camera: K3MKIII Photo Location: Black Moshannon Lake, PA

I was kayaking up at Black Moshannon Lake in Central Pennsylvania this afternoon when I ran across a Great Blue Heron slowly stalking the flats. I sat there holding my PZ-1p with a SMC DAL 55-300 lens watching, It suddenly struck and I fired off the last shots on the roll, then grabbed my K3ii/55-300PLM to take the shots you see here. Looking forward to getting the roll back. A bit later I ran across another GBH cooling off by Gular Fluttering, which always looks(and sounds) a bit weird. All told it was a nice day.

That fish does look like it might be a tough one to swallow. Nice shots of the Great Blue Heron. Agree, it looked like a very nice day.

Fascinating -- day in the life of a heron!
Worth sitting and watching and waiting to see what they do.
Have never been able to see them catch fish.
