Great Blue Heron and fish

I have been having a LOT of fun with Annie, my new camera. We took this photo at lunch yesterday at the lab. Amazing to realize that this poor little fish is right now nourishing not just one heron but three or four others. That's how many babies are in the nest. Three for sure, and maybe four! I'll be trying to get more photos from the nest tomorrow.

  2. It's a Canon 50D--I took this photo at not too far a distance, with the 100-400 mm L-series zoom, and cropped it to show what was going on.
