Default Big Gulp

Watched this Great Blue Heron spear a fish and swallow it. The fish was still flopping around on the birds bill, the heron put it on the ground and stabbed the fish until it was still. Could not capture that, was behind brush. Most of the time portions were hidden but I feel I captured the essence. That throat really expands!

Not sure, it is not a native fish. We have many invasive species that were released in Florida and thrive in our waterways.

An interesting series - that's quite the fish there. It looks too big for the bird to eat whole, the neck expansion is fascinating.

What a wonderful series Ed. When I saw the first shot I thought there's no way that bird can eat that entire fish. Clearly, I was wrong!
