Dinner Time

Watched this Great Blue Heron for five minutes or so as my boat slowly moved past him with the current on the Rainbow River. He was working the reeds on the side, slowly searching for something to eat. Just as I came level with him he made a dart and came up with this crawfish (I think). Took him a few flips and chomps but eventually got it positioned correctly to get it down the gullet. Didn't know that herons would eat crawfish.
