Smashing capture!

Marie said...

Exquisite!

By the way, Brian, reading about Geronimo in the past and again more recently in Once They Moved Like the Wind by David Roberts, a history of the Apache, gives you such an appreciation for seeing this marvelous piece, and really anything dealing with the Apache people. Come out our way some time! We'd love to share some of these things with you out here!

Sharon Whitley said...

brilliant shot!

Hi there - that’s a great picture. I've never been able to get one of a heron doing this!

I was, to say the least, surprised when I saw the starfish. I had seen starfish like this in shops - but I assumed that they were dyed – I don’t know if you can get them as pets!

Beautiful capture of the heron and his fish catching actions.
Nicely done, Brian.. you must have the patients of a saint.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Whoa, Brian! Awesome. I've never seen a GBH catch a fish that big!! Be proud of this one, my friend. I think I'd have to frame that one.

Terri Buster said...

Very nice action shot, and what a big fish he is about to swallow!

Kerri said...
