Great Blue Heron With Large Sunfish

By | July 8, 2020

I have been photographing Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets the past few weeks catching and eating fish. The area that they are in is drying up and the fish are in small shallow areas. When this occurs it brings lots of these birds into the area to feed and photographing them is fast-paced.
