The Heron Rookery - April 2011

Took a quick trip down to the James River to catch the morning light and the Blue Herons. Last time I went I did not bring my 70-200 f/2.8 which basically made for a wasted trip as I had nothing in my gear bag over 55mm. These birds are amazing to watch and are much bigger than they appear. Their fishing techniques are quite impressive as I was fortunate enough to witness one capture a large shad and swallow it whole without missing a step. Beautiful creatures.
