Great Blue Heron (Two Photographs)

My lens followed this bird as it walked up onto this tree trunk. Every shot I took (over 30) had some issue, usually a branch that obscured a part of the bird. Even this shot required an application of de-hazing to get just that little bit better. At this stage the bird was shaking the fish quite violently and fortunately my shutter speed was high enough to stop motion. It’s challenges like these that make nature photography fun, something your audience probably won’t see in the final product. I tried this shot in black and white (see below) not quite the same impact.
