Photo Strip: Great Blue Heron Catching a Fish

The majority of the time, photography takes a huge amount of patience. It’s definitely worth the extra effort, for you might have an opportunity to witness something incredible.

This sequence of photos was taken in a marsh as a great blue heron caught and swallowed a fish. The heron stood motionless for half an hour, observing and waiting, but when it saw an opportunity, it all happened so fast.
