Great Blue Heron
Photographer: Beth Galligan
Location: Manhattan, KS
This was an exceptionally hard winter. I've never seen herons fish like Osprey and eagles before. This guy went into 14 feet of water feet first, plucked the fish up, then folded his wings and treaded water for a minute or so before taking off again.
Digital Alterations:
