This morning I was driving to work and spotted a great blue heron. It was well lit so I decided to turn around and take a couple pictures. As I pulled up to a stop I saw it strike at something. It looks like it caught a nice fat rat. I had just enough time to grab the camera and press the shutter. Luckily the settings were pretty close. I wish I has set the shutter speed up a little higher, but that's life.

A real odd-ball from last month in Costa Rica, a boat-billed heron. We visited an area that had a rookery for these strange birds.
