Black and White Reflections - Great Blue Heron

This fellow stood very still at the edge of a small pond up in Mohawk Park.  I watched him as he stepped very slowly out into the water.  He leaned forward intently then snapped his head forward and down and came up out of the water with a small fish wiggling in his beak.

What a wonderful photo. I have no idea how you were able to get so close to him! The blue herons around here don't tolerate photographers. LOL Happy Reflections!
