The Washington State Ferries provide transportation from San Juan Island to the mainland and back. I took this photo while Amoeba and I were waiting for the ferry home after our weekend at Deception Pass State Park. Since we had a couple of hours to kill and it was a beautiful day, we decided to visit the beach. Almost immediately I noticed this Heron wading along the shoreline and trained my camera on him.
He stood immobile for ages, and so did I. Finally, I was rewarded for my patience when he struck — amazingly fast — and captured this fish. I have several shots of him dining as well, but since he was moving they are a bit blurred.
