The Flip

After a Great Blue Heron catches a fish, normally crosswise in it’s beak, it must flip the fish so that it goes down head first. No this heron didn’t loose the fish, This shot was taken during the brief instant the fish was in the air before being recaught head first.

I’ve only been to Bombay Hook, National Wildlife Refuge, twice, Most of the waterways were ice covered, but a few had flowing water. Although the temperature was in the 40s, we had been having below freezing temperatures for quite a while.
