I photographed this Great Blue Heron With Wingtip Touching Water while I was at the Charleston 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.
The sight of a Great Blue Heron flying to shore with a fish is a testament to the bird’s strength, skill, and grace. These magnificent birds are a joy to watch and an important part of many ecosystems. Whether you’re a photographer, birdwatcher or simply enjoy the beauty of nature, taking the time to observe a Great Blue Heron in action is an experience you won’t soon forget.
