Heron catches a fish | The Dominion Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm

May 22, 2022

Earlier today, I was blessed with a magnificent opportunity during my daily morning walk through Ottawa's Arboretum.   Before my eyes were two herons, one of which was poking their head in and out of the marshy ground.   With my Canon R3 in hand — and my Canon EF 70-200mm lens attached — I rapidly dialed in my settings and snapped this pic just as the heron plucked out a fish to eat.    And not a moment too soon, as the moment and bite was interrupted by an unleashed dog that quickly entered the scene to chase the bird away with fish in hand — so to speak.
