Great Blue Heron Fishing

www.jhcphoto.ca

Here you can see an example of the Great Blue Heron catching his lunch.  Heron's are great fishermen, they stand in the shallow waters for 5, 10 and sometimes 20 minutes perfectly still waiting for a fish to come close enough to strike and in an instant they are in the water catching their lunch.  These photographs where taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a 400mm lens.  The shutter speed was set at 1/1000 second, the aperture was set at F5.6 and the ISO is set to 400.
