– A light breakfast – ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A juvenile Great Blue Heron catches a tiny fish for breakfast. I think it's a juvenile because it was small and its feathers were brown. Unfortunately, this is close to a 100% crop of the original frame. Wish I could have cropped this in camera but I don't have a 600mm lens.? I think I'll go buy a lottery…haha! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Location: #HarrisonRiver #HarrisonMills #BritishColumbia #Canada Camera: #Canon #7DMarkII Lens: EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Settings: 1/500 sec f/8 ISO 1250 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Many thanks to Henni of @astounding_shots for featuring my heron silhouette.
