Heron Snags Crayfish on Byrne Creek

I observed this heron as it fished the mouth of Byrne Creek in south Burnaby, BC. I was rewarded when it snagged a crayfish.

I watched it stalking for about an hour, and even with a tripod my hands were starting to cramp by the time the action finally started. And it was over in about five seconds .
