Got Fish?

Once in a while, you snap a picture and don't even realize, just from looking through the viewfinder, what you've got. We were toodling along the Wildlife Drive at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge last Sunday when we noticed cars ahead of us stopped to see and photograph this Great Blue Heron chowing down on a monster fish.

We stopped, too, and Warren snapped a bunch of shots. He didn't notice the Ring-Billed Gull lurking at the edges of the scene, hoping for a morsel--or more.

Guess who won?

Very cool..
We have been birding here in florida and for a few days it was soooooo cold in the 30s probably a bit colder windchill and I was not a good birder...stayed in the car allot.
It seems that you are out birding all the time in the cold.
How the heck do you do it?

No cold today... wonderful and in the 50's. Finally. Hope you got some warm also.

PS - I tend to hang in the car much more than Cute Hubby when the temps drop below 30.
