This guy flew down right past my head, as I was making some adjustments to my camera!  I looked up to see what the "swoosh" was that fanned my face and ear and there he was sitting in a short Palm tree, only 6 or 7 feet away from me!!  He let me shoot him for over 30 minutes and even gave me the infamous "One eyed wink" shot!  It was a great day for photos!!

One of the predatory kings..the Great Blue Heron.  Here's one I caught at Dana Point Harbor - desperate for a meal;  he plucked this ground squirrel of all things out from under the rocks (captured).  After a few more grisly shots he seemed annoyed and took off with the ground squirrel live in its mouth.  Note the blood spot on its head.  Note its feeble act of desperation to break free in the first photo where its leg is extended outward.  Mother nature at its finest.

Thanks Rev!  I liked that one quite a bit myself!  :D  I love your shots of the GBH with the ground squirrel!  What an unusual capture!  I've got them catching snakes and fish, but never anything like that!  I didn't even know they would be interested in that type of kill... Fascinating, really!  Thanks for posting!
