Moments Apart (Two Photographs)

These images of a Great Blue Heron with a Catfish were shot less than a minute apart. It gives you an idea of how fast these events can move. This was one of those times when I missed the actual fishing but caught the aftermath, which ended with the bird wandering behind some trees. It also shows the quick change in expressions you can see in animals. I never take the camera from my eye when I see something like this; shooting single frames and trying to get the things right, like the head when it’s in the best light, it all has to come together in seconds. Things do not always work out and the opportunities are never as great as one would like but a great capture is a great capture. I shoot single frames, “spray and shoot” has its place but more than likely in circumstances like this it would prevent any adjustments of settings and position.
