Great Blue Heron with Grey Squirrel

Nikon D4 500mm f/4 with TC 1.4x

f/9.0 1/2500 ISO 800

Photo taken in May 2014, at Ed Levin Country Park Milpitas, California. With the lakes drying up during the California drought, this Great Blue Heron moved from his normal diet of fish and started stalking Grey Squirrels. He repeated hunting Grey Squirrel, which are abundant at the park, for several days, allowing for me to establish the timing and location of his feeding.
