Heron & fish

We watched a heron catch & eat a fish.

He either jumped or fell the rock. We aren't sure.

But he got the fish.

[The original video is a nasty-big file (~58 mb). Blogger scrunched it into something more manageable & less clear. It is still fun.]

The heron had a lot of trouble with the fish but eventually managed to swallow it.

I had wandered off by then, so missed photographing the mid-throat bulge.
