I photographed this Great Blue Heron With Wingtip Touching Water while I was at the Charleston City Lake in Charleston, Arkansas. The Great Blue Heron dove off of a platform in the lake (Great Blue Heron Unique Fishing Method) and caught the fish. It then flies with the fish to the bank to swallow it.
