Default catch of the day: catfish tartare (6)

this great blue heron caught itself a nice catfish for supper, then flew off somewhere else to eat it...

i've often wondered that myself. but apparently they're able to detect the movement of the fish through just the smallest gaps in the leaves... this bird's aim was pretty good - notice the lower half of his bill went through the fish, like a harpoon!
