A Great Blue Heron catching a snake fish in Bermuda.

A went to Flatts Inlet in Bermuda hoping to photograph birds. I was startled to see a Great Blue Heron's head just below my feet. This bird did not fly off even though I was very close and I wondered why. I patiently took photos and eventually the heron caught 3 fish. This fish was caught and the heron continued to walk toward me after it caught the fish.
