This great blue heron was spotted catching lunch on the fly from aboard the River Gorge Explorer. Two herons were flying along when this one suddenly changed course and dipped down to snatch a fish. Herons spend much of their time stalking meals along the shoreline, so it was a bit of a surprise to see this one acting like an osprey.
There's just a little time remaining to snatch a great deal: From now until April 19th, The River Gorge Explorer Early Bird Special – is just $20 per person when you book the 10:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. cruise in advance. Call 1-800-262-0695 for your reservation and mention the "Early Bird Special".
