Great Blue Heron With Rainbow Trout

I got really lucky with this shot. I pulled up to the dock at Garrison Lake in Port Orford, Oregon, and saw the great blue heron standing on the dock. When I parked it flew off and actually went closer to the viewing platform, where I could sneak up closer without it seeing me. Once I reached the platform and peaked around the trees, there it was about 20ft and not a moment later it made this kill. Oddly enough it probably wouldn't have feasted if I didn't spook it with my arrival to begin with. Your welcome and thank you for the sweet shot!
