Breakfast At Brazos Bend

I was tooleying around 40-Acre Lake at this park, tripod and camera set up and pointing out toward the wetlands next to the lake.  All of a sudden, I saw a flurry of feathers from the corner of my eye.  Aiming my camera in that direction, I managed to capture a series of photos of a great blue heron and it’s eel breakfast.
