I waited to see if Mr. GBH would try to swallow whole, but he moved to shore and ate bite-size,...er...beak-size pieces.

Was going to take a survey on number of correct guesses:lol:.

Thanks for looking.

Wow! I've seen them pull in huge ones before and then leave them uneaten on shore. Never witnessed one take one apart.

guess the heron wins that contest! that's a huge dish - i've seen herons eat some pretty good-sized fish, but never one that big. i haven't seen them eat one piecemeal, though - not sure how they'd go about that....

Terrific shot! I saw one try to eat a big Bullhead once. He had little luck with that.

Thanks, Jeff. Twice as big? Wow-surprised those skinny legs could support such weight.

Appreciate it, Sandy. When I saw what the egret had snared and had already seen the heron's catch, the title just seemed right.

Ya think? Maybe he shared w/ the egret:-). Thank you for looking in and commenting.

You might have gotten a late start this year, Rog, but you're making up for it with wonderful photos. Well done.

Two very nice captures Rog, well done on both of them. I'm envious of the GBH , the fish I catch are usually much smaller than this one!
