Fish’s Last Ride

While shooting in the rain today, June 26, 2014, I watched this Great Blue Heron, in just a few minutes, down about 20 of what I guess are minnows.  He was picking them out of the water as fast as he could swallow them.   Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1000, f4, ISO 2000, 500mm.   Taken at Ridgefield NWR, Washington State.
