Green Heron with catch

That's an amazing stance. Long reach whilst assumedly clinging to the side of a branch? And all for that tiny morsel.
Lovely sharp photos

Awesome shot Sidknee. He sure speared that one nicely.

Thanks Mike, pretty sure this is a young bird and he stabbed the fish and put it down quite a few times before eating it, either playing with its food or just practising the killer move :)

Same heron, different day, different dinner. Critically endangered European eel trying to escape the clutches of the grey heron (it didn't)
