I was photographing the Heron with the catfish, when it took off and jumped over to the other Heron with the catfish in its mouth.
My friend said, "hey look, their dancing' I said, "are they dancing?" ... it looked like a dance, I moved in closer to see.... they went into a face off wings fully extended out, and their feathers all a fluff. I then heard all this screeching noise, and the fight began.
The other Heron grabbed the fish from the Heron who caught it. They fought as they both went under the water...in a brutal fight for this huge fish. The one Heron started to fly away when he finally was able to get up from under water and away from the other Heron. The other Heron chased him all the way down the creek. The fish was lost in the fight.... neither had the fish in the photo flying away.[the_ad id="61677"]
