Great Blue Heron, A Fluke

In between the southern monsoons we went out shooting near Charleston Harbor. It’s really a short distance from the marshes so the same birds are in both places.

We timed the visit to be at low tide and quickly found this opportunity. The fish looks to be a large Fluke. I had thought they were only North Atlantic but unless this is a ‘freakish huge’ Flounder I think that’s what it was.

The Heron hung on to the fish and walked around, never attempted to eat it. Finally he flew off into the salt marsh.
