Great Blue Heron catches a fish for breakfast.

I went to Heritage Pond where people come and go to fish. I saw the heron on the side of the road when I came into the pond. A lot of people go there to fish and I thought they could hit this bird. The heron went back into the pond and I got my camera and took it's photo. It caught a fish whild I was taking pictures of it.
