June 3

I didn't intend to get another heron photo today. Andrew and I went to the Fifth St. Bridge at high tide to watch a pod of seals feeding. At first I thought they were whales because they sort of jump out of the water when they dive. But it turns out that's really hard to photograph! And there was a heron perched on the edge of a sea wall feeding there too. I had my choice of fish in the beak photos, and decided on this one because it's a nice profile, even though it's a little blurry as it's trying to gulp the fish down. It doesn't even leave its spot as it's feeding; it just dives its head into the water and comes up with a fish!
