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.
Yesterday I was watching this blue heron fishing at the edge of the marsh, when once again our pro fishing expert came up with two fish on one attempt!
I guess there is nowhere else to go from here but hope for a threefer. If anybody can do it, this heron will.
Quite the talented fisherbird!
Oh yeah, this bird is a real pro!
Another great capture by you and the bird! Did he manage to eat both fish?!
Thanks Deb and yes he got them both down with no problem.
Wow! He must be friend of yours. Great photographs.
I’ve been seeing thus guy just about every day. He knows a great fishing spot when he sees it!
That bird should be in the bird olympics. Lovely photos.
I know! All 10s across the board!
Great picture of the heron and its valuable catch!
It takes the same energy to catch two as it does one so this heron has the right idea!
Brilliant shots, Phil. Mr. GBH is a force to be reckoned with. I’m sure his reputation precedes him, and those fishies shiver in their shoes when they see that beak coming for them. 😯
He is definitely head GBH out there and especially since our pal Radar has been missing for over two months now. We suspect he is off with a family but will return. He won’t be happy to find this guy working his favorite fishing spot.
Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
TWO AT ONE TIME!!!!!
Thanks very much, appreciate it!
Yes he did and so did you 🙂
I was almost too shocked to grab the pics, but lucky I stayed with him. He caught a ton of fish too, don’t know where he put it all.
And you did it again either, to capture this moment so perfectly.
Thanks very much, glad you liked seeing this guy in action again!
Obviously a world class fisherbird.
This heron is a pro and will not be going hungry any time soon with those skills!
Ha Ha…love it!
Thanks very much for looking and commenting I appreciate it!
Great shot. I only managed to get a shot of a white faced heron with one fish.
Thanks, well one fish at a time is the usual limit. This guy may be poaching. 🙂
Now three would be quite something.
I (and the GBH) have a new goal to shoot for. He better come through too now that I’ve practically promised it will happen.
he’s a clever bird.
He is very good at what he does. Thanks for looking and commenting!
