This is a Great Blue Heron I photographed last February with a captured fish. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

How I Got The Shot – Great Blue Heron With Captured Fish

I parked on the auto tour road west of the Ruff boat ramp. The Heron was on the south side of the road.

I had my Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
