Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Great blue heron eats a blue-gill fish for breakfast.

Walking along the edge of Lake Tsala Apopka in Florida in the early morning, I caught this great blue heron knee-deep in the water eating breakfast. At first I wished I was in a kayak in the pond so I could get a picture of it with the first rays of light reflecting off its feathers, but I photographed it anyway and captured a nice silhouette image. I had a lump in my throat when it tossed the fish around to swallow it whole.  Then it continued to hunt for more fish. Oh well, time to head back for my breakfast, but it won’t be fish!!!
