This is a green heron displaying its neck/throat feathers as it swallowed a sizeable fish. I photographed this bird over an 8 day period during my summer vacation and it was a lot of fun to have such a cooperative subject display a variety of behaviours and postures during its periodic visits. Taken at Mud lake, Ottawa On Canada with a Nikon D3s camera dna Nikon 600 mm lens.
