Green Heron with Frog

This photo was too cool not to share. The sun was really harsh in the spot where he was fishing, and I had to shoot through some leaves to get to him, so the shot isn't perfect. But, I've never seen a heron catch anything other than fish. I know they do, I just had not witnessed it yet. Pretty neat stuff!

 

I also believe that this guy is a sub-adult, not a full adult Green Heron.
