Eat, Drink and Be Merry

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Eat, Drink and Be Merry.

A story of a Great Blue Heron on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline, Ontario, Canada. All the photos are of the same bird taken over about 40 minutes although I did shuffle the order they were taken in to fit the challenge.

Eat. The Great Blue Heron has just caught and swallowed a small fish.

Swallowing a small fish.

Drink. Actually the bird is striking after a fish but they probably swallow water sometimes.

Be Merry. Amusement about the Closed To Fishing sign.

No Fishing Sign.

Thanks Dale. Version 2 was a small colony of Black Terns in Saskatchewan but while I had the eating and drinking I didn’t have a very Merry image.

I wanted to stick with a single species and preferably a single bird which is why I scrapped version two. The annoying thing is that I was sure I had a shot of the Great Blue Heron with a small fish in its bill but couldn’t find it.

Easily one of my favorite birds in the world. Excellent work, David.
