Little Blue Heron Catching Crawfish

Made a trip to Brazos Bend State Park this weekend.  The best area to shoot at was the spillway bridge where there were a couple of Little Blue Herons feeding.  They would fly off when someone walked across the bridge but they always came back.  Patience pays in wildlife photography.  The reflections from the trees helped to make a pleasing background.  My rule of thumb is to start shooting when their heads start to go down towards the water, which can lead to some interesting splash shots.  Every once in a while they would come up with a crawfish.  It was a good time while hanging out with David and Fred.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens mounted on tripod with Sidekick gimbal mount.  No flash.
