Feb 20 2013 Wordless Wednesday: Catch of the day Our resident Great Blue Heron seems to have bitten off more than he can chew. 🙂 Share this:SharePinterestLinkedInTwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related
I guess he would have enjoyed a pelican beak for this catch.
Yes, that would certainly have helped. 😀
Yummo! Lunch! 🙂
Ha ha ha Lucky catch 🙂
It was a BIG one. 🙂
Thanks, Madhu. 🙂
Thanks, Tandy. 🙂
Nice meal eh? 😆
Looks really delicious. 😀
What did he have for dessert?
Not sure he got around to dessert, Dallas. He spent so long trying o work out how to swallow his sushi. 😀
what a happy chappy!
That’s so funny he had to abandon it because it was too big! And smart of you not to risk getting eaten by an alligator! 🙂
Yes, all that effort for nothing. 😦 There’s no way I’m even dipping my big toe in that water. 🙂
Yum. I think! 😉
Yum – I love fresh fish! 😀
Maybe I should buy myself a fishing rod. 🙂
I wouldn’t bet on it! Herons are greedy beggars, you know.
I think I’m descended from one 🙂
Hahaha…….but they don’t eat Maltesers. Well, I suppose they might, if I offered them some of yours. 😆
What a capture!
Thanks, Naomi. I was very patient. 🙂
Big feast for the happy bird!
That is a serious lunch! Smashing capture Sylvia. 🙂
Thanks so much, Adrian. 🙂
Great photo Sylvia! 🙂
He is certainly in for a challenge in gulping that down. Did you see him succeed or fail?
No, after many efforts to maneuver it into his mouth, he seemed to abandon it in the mud. He was over the other side of the pond, so I couldn’t go over and check. I didn’t want to risk getting eaten by an alligator.
I bet he hasn’t! I bet he wolfed it down! 🙂
Not whilst I was watching, he didn’t. I really think it was too big for him to handle.
Ah, perhaps you’re right then. I often find it surprising how much some creatures are able to consume. I find myself watching natural history documentaries thinking “Oh, I think you were being a bit ambitious there mate” only for them to immediately swallow the whole thing!
Nice catch .. for both you and the heron! I’m sure he will be able to figure out how get the lunch down.
Thanks, Viveka. 🙂
Thanks so much. 🙂
Your welcome 🙂
Right place at the right time …. and for you too.
Absolutely, Frank. 🙂
Nice! Do you live close to Phil? 🙂
Fantastic photograph. Great catch 🙂
This was a great capture… well done…
Looks like you’re giving Phil a run for his money! Great shot Sylvia.
I’ll bet he was very pleased with himself.
Cool shot AD!!
Sardines on toast 🙂
Tha is a pretty big fish, he’s rather ambitious!
Yes he was, Gilly, and he didn’t manage to get it down. 😦
Maybe he’ll share some so we can have sushi 😉
good morning – how are you? excellent post. he he ! offer still stands for luggage carrier, !
That’s a big beakfull
Thanks, RV. 🙂
Like the backlight in his neck feathers. A stunning shot.
Thanks so much, Ruth. 🙂
That should keep himgoing for a while:D
It certainly should, if he could get it down. 🙂
That’s quite the catch 🙂
Yes, it was quite a catch, Angeline. 🙂
Nice meal it caught!!
Yes, it would have been enough for my supper. 🙂
