My first Great Blue Heron of 2013

This morning while I was capturing the sunrise at Quail Lake, I saw my first heron of the year. I went back and lunch and watched as he caught two trout. Lots of good ones in here, and lots of ones best seen in a series. So I apologize in advance for the number of images in the gallery.

Hawk vs Snake

yes, the hawk wins. Sorry about the last image’s quality. I shot it leaning out the passenger side window, from the drivers side. No easy task with a fully extended 500mm lens. these shots show the progression of the attack. from lamp post, to where he missed it, then hit it before it got to the weeds.

A Beaver and a Heron walk into a bar….

It was a good night at the pond in the park. The Heron found a great spot over a pump head to fish. He got himself a nice fat Koi. The Beaver was out as well, and had plenty of observers. All in all, a good night.
