The “Tuesday Inspiration” is not a contest or a challenge, just the 60 plus members agreeing to post their interpretations of a single theme set weekly by a contributor. The theme subject is not revealed in title or tags and the standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. are expected. To take part in this interesting weekly happening here on PB contact Helen (girafferacing [photoblog.com]). Thanks for all your work on this project, Helen!

More TI entries for this week RIGHT HERE. [photoblog.com]

At the same pond where I shot the Frog Prince and the Goose Family there came the “icing on the cake.”
A blue heron flew in, perched in a tree, and the rest is history.


Very important to scan the area from above for danger while looking for a place to fish.

Keep a keen eye out! Diligence will pay off!

Ah…success in locating a safe place! Now patience…patience…

More patience….waiting…..waiting….here, fishy, fishy!

Aha!!!! I see you….here I come!!!

Gotcha!!!

It's lunchtime!

What a tasty morsel you will be!

Down you go….GULP! It's nice to be nearer to the top than to the bottom of the food chain!

Great Big Blue shots! Dang what a catch! Super actions shots too!! Could you imagin trying to catch a fish like that. Herons don't spear their food they use their bills like bb-que tongs! I think I would starve if I had to fish that way!!! Hi-5 to you!!!!

The sequence really tells the story.

An amazing sequence of photos, they are very good fishermen, and beautiful birds... the owner of the pond is going to be hacked off when they do a head count and find one of their prize shubinkins is missing though!

These are remarkable shots of this pretty guy dining out! I like the cropped photo in #2 and the action shot in #6. Did you use the "sports continuous" setting for those?
