Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) dines on Frogs Legs

We are at the Dealership for “Tigger”, our 40′ diesel pusher motor home and one of the managers tells me that they had just finished clearing the pond and there is a couple of “nice ducks” on the water.  So I head round there with my gear, but they are a pair of standard Mallards.  However I discover some fairly rare shorebirds (material for another blog) and this Juvenile Great Blue Heron having his lunch.  What a find!  I get a lot of stills then think and switch to video mode.

Gear: Nikon D4S, Nikkor 600mm f/4 VR II, Nikkor TC-20 EIII, Lexar Digital Film, RRS Tripod & Gimbal Head
