This first pic is of one that recently joined the little Yellow Crowned Night Heron that took up residence in the pond out back.

YCNH with a Red Crayfish almostas big as it is. This shot and the next one were taken at 1250 ISO, the guy stays in the shadows and was late evening, so....

Henever got it down and the big heron chased him off from his spot.

This is sort of a goofy looking image of the blue heron, but after chasing the YCNH off he went after the big cray fish but he never got it down either. It looked like the cray fish was clamping on and the heron kept shaking it loose. The heron finally left well enough alone and stalked off.

Not for nothing, but I WOULD have chased these guys off and hunted the crayfish myself. They are better than Lobster. Chato would be looking like a stuffed pig instead of a dog.

Just get some boots and wade in there with a small net. Turn over the rocks and get a bunch!

Very nice, especially considering the low light. I agree with DBB. You need to get a pot of those crayfish for yourself.

My God, I got so excited at the thought of GIANT CRAYFISH that I forgot to comment on the images - Nice shots!

Thanks all for looking and the comments.

I agree, I should keep all those big ole' crayfish for myself :-).Never thought much about it......although I know several people that would trample me for a chance to get some of those.They are there every year and I see them walking across the grass andtheir big mounds all over.Hmmm....:idea:
