Waiting for Breakfast, Herons in the Lynnhaven back creeks

Early morning low tide in a back creek of the Lynnhaven River Watershed.
Winter in January still seems to provide a lot of small fish for the birds.
A 100+ birds lined this creek for a 1/2 of a mile feeding on fish.

Blue Throat Pike Blenny, Cozumel Mexico #1

The blenny comes out to "defend his area" from an intruder.
The intruder is his image in a small mirror. The bright shallow water allowed for
a ISO 100, f/16, 1/160 shot, with the Canon 5D and a 100mm macro lens.
They usually do not come completely out of their hole. This fellow came out
and circled the mirror trying to find the intruder.

Blue Throat Pike Blenny, Cozumel Mexico #2

Same Pike Blenny in pervious picture.
The f-stop of 16 gets the blenny and the
reflection in fairly good focus in both shots.
