Its been a while since I last went back to the popular Grey Heron area.
It was a hot sunny sunday afternoon with the low tide coming in around 6pm @ 0.3m . Good opportunity for feeding shots. Too bad the warm lighting lasted only till 430pm.
Below are a few record shots of the different type of preys that the Grey Heron feeds on.
All pictures taken with available light, between 615pm till 645pm, @ ISO500 to 640.
A large prawn for starter

A Copper-Banded Butterfly fish - not a typical fish (as it is flat and very hard for the Grey Heron to swallow).



Now the real main dish. A X-Large catfish !!




A bit too greedy I would say

Cheers ! Hope the next low tide will have good warm lighting.

Nice photos...

Wah, the birdie no doubt is quite big, but can it swallow the not so small fish in 1 go? I know the head goes in first, but still the fish is not small, the bird won't get choke meh?
