I went to the Britannia Conservation Area on Wednesday June 23, and spent a pleasan summer afternoon there. I carried my trusty Pentax K-3II with Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM super-zoom lens.
I spent two hours with this efficient Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) in my 2 hours he/she caught 8 Brown Bullhead catfish (Ameiurus nebulosus). The heron could careless about spectators, as long as there were catfish in the shallow water of Mud Lake (Britannia Conservation Area) it was happy. I can’t say the catfish were happy.
The heron finally had it’s fill and flew of with a belly full of brown bullheads.
