Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias), Beaverton on Lake Simcoe
There's still a lot of ice on Lake Simcoe but there are spots of open water. This heron has wasted no time returning to this lake so famous for great fishing.
Wind blown but concentrating on finding something tasty
The heron struck with such lightning speed that I missed it!
Swallowing something yummy
But here you can see it swallowing it's prey. Hmmm. Here it doesn't look quite as statuesque as it did in the first photo, but as soon as it finished swallowing, it returned to it's demure demeanor and then flew away.
