How in the world did you ever capture this unbelievable shot? I've got some heron shots that I think are pretty darn good, but nothing like this. Superb work Janet. V++

A TERRIFIC shot Janet.
Sam Rua31-Aug-2011 13:37
Nicely captured (both of you). I wonder how in the heck birds like this can catch multiple fish like this. Amazing.
Laurie Hawkins 20-Apr-2011 23:42
I don't know what's more impressive - the fact that you captured this moment so well or that this GBH is such a neat eater! BV

Reminds me of those labs that can hold 3 tennis balls in their mouth at the same time. although this trick seems much harder or at least much slipperier!

The trick would be for the Heron not to lose its lunch. Commentary from you
