Down the hatch!

What is it about me and Herons? Sure, I like them a lot, but I just keep bumping into them lately. This one speared the fish with its beak and then had the challenge of getting it off and down its throat. He raw away to eat and by the time I caught up with him, he had already tossed it off its beak and it was going down. That dark spot on the sunfish is actually the beak hole, not the fin.

camera: Canon 10D, 100-400L @400, ISO 1600, 1/125, f5.6 -1.5 exposure comp, hand held
Neat image to remove noise
photoshop: sharpen, crop, reduce, levels & contrast.

That looks like one hungry Heron. :D
Very nice!
