Thanks Jack.  :)

The picture was taken on the Thousand Island River just north of Montreal.

Harry the Terminator said he'd be back! Caught a big one an hour ago. Also, my Brazilian Cardinal friend usually appears for a bread handout whenever Harry and I are fishing.

Thanks Steven.

I took this picture around 6:30 in the morning while kayaking.
For this shot, I used a 7D and a Canon 500 f4L with monopod.  EXIF 1/400 f8 ISO 200

I often combine kayaking and photography.  :)

Thanks, Alan for the kind words. I was probably about 7-10 feet or so, and was above him several feet. In this area, the canal ditch has a concrete slope down to the waters edge where I toss bread crumbs. When he gets a fish, he quickly runs up away from the water and away from me. I move off the bridge and onto the ground above him. He is cautious and so I move slow enough not to spook him too much. I can usually get about 8-12 feet and then start shooting. I cropped this 400mm shot somewhat to emphasize the fish more. No other heron will let me get closer than 20-30 feet, but this guy gets close because he knows I will get him easy fish ;D
