The Catch

My Reddish Egret buddy dove his head into the water and came up with this very large fish.  Another one of my tips from my bird photography classes is to start shooting when you see their head starting to go down towards the water.  That way you can get a cool spash shot or if your lucky, a fish coming out of the water.  I was surprised at how big the fish was and I’m always amazed that they can swollow it whole.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens with 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II head.

  1. Two neat action shots. On the first one I like how it trails out of the water. Something about the second one got me to thinking and looking longer. I would have to name it Eye to Eye. Good job!

  2. Thanks David. Reddish Egret’s are always a good time, especially in good light and up close.
