Three Great Blue Heron Fishing
The fish are so plentiful during low tide at Spanish Banks in English Bay, Vancouver BC that these three heron need only to watch closely then dip their beaks into the water for a good lunch.
In the space of five minutes each of them catches two fish. They take a moment to let the fish die before swallowing it whole. Some lovely summer time scenery in the background, of the harbour and boats in the channel on their way to and from downtown Vancouver.
The unusual thing that happened on this day was that someone with a very expensive boat but no piloting skills managed to ignore the channel markers entirely and get their boat stuck in the outgoing tide. It's foolish and frankly dangerous to take a power boat, especially such a large one, to a place normally used by people and dogs.
I talked to the family on my way out, they had already had a conversation with the life guard. The fellow seemed a bit bashful, defensive even, at his predicament. It seems obvious that a basic boat safety course would be required upon purchase of a yacht like this, or at least upon securing moorage at a sailing centre.
