Juvenile Great Blue Heron caught a catfish. He needed to flip it up in the air and swallow it whole. He wasn't confident doing it over the water, so he lifted the heavy load unto dry land.

Nice slice of life, as it were. Beautiful setting for that heron!

Great in the wild shot of the (Grey?) Heron with lunch. Nice timing. Good s/s to get the head relatively steady yet blur on the wings. Pity it is quartering away from you slightly and the head/eye appears unsharp.
