and now I will add
The above Blue Heron visits the pond across the street from my apartment often. Since I live on the third floor and my balcony is in full view, he has gotten to be a source of entertainment for me. The following five photos were taken day before yesterday just before dark as he came for his evening meal.
He's caught something for his dinner. It could be a fish?
Nope, it's a big, fat juicy frog
He's trying to swallow it.
He turns this way and that, putting up a fight to hang on to that frog.
I don't know who won the battle. But, it certainly was entertaining to say the least.
