I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
Recently we were watching this green heron working the edge of the salt marsh among the oyster beds. The greenie was intently yet patiently staring into the water in hopes a fish would swim nearby.
His diligence was rewarded as the bird plucked it’s evening meal out of the water. The green heron had to be happy with this catch as we so often see them snatch up only tiny minnows which require much more work for less payoff.
