That's a Spicy Meatball!

Great Blue Heron ~ (Ardea herodias)

 

A Great Blue Heron catches a Hardhead Catfish. This saltwater catfish's spines can inflict a painful puncture wound and the mucous on the fins contains a toxin. The Heron tried to position the fish numerous times in an attempt to eat it before it decided that Alka-Seltzer was just not going to cut it for this meal and let it go.

 

Thanks for visiting!
