Catching The Catch
This was taken at an area dam. There were more than two dozen of these juvenile black-crowned night herons, and watching their attempts to catch fish was almost comical. I was there for several hours, and this was the ONLY one who managed to finally nab his lunch, so I was fortunate to catch him doing it!
