This Black-Crowned Night Heron actually flew right in front of me, swooped down into the canal and grabbed a fish from the water, but I couldn't get my camera out in time to capture him in action.  He landed on the bank of the canal and proceeded to swallow this rather large fish whole!


  1. Wow that's a bit of a mouthful Lisa, well done to catch this picture.

  2. Nice shot Lisa, you were pretty close to catch this. Oddly I saw a heron yesterday but between the tall reeds and the boggy marsh I just could not get any closer than around 50m, just too far. Paul at Leeds daily photo
