Good shots, David!

Just imagine this scaled up to just 4 times the size and it could eat a dog or lamb!

We are only seeing the small versions of these elegant beasts!

The Great Blue Heron Stands 36 to 54 inches (head to tail) and has a wing span of 66 to 79 inches. They are a somewhat opportunistic feeder. This one surprised me at the fact that it went after a mole and actually ate it. I did some research after taking these photos and found out that this is not unusual for these birds. Thank you for the comments Asher.

A couple of images from earlier this year - couldn't help but join in the fun here (not for voting).

What A Day I'm Having! - Sculpin vs Pied-billed Grebe (Ding Darling NWR, FL):




Osprey Mating - Blue Cypress Lake, FL:



Best,
I really like both images.

Wonderful picture!

I have been trying to search on the web for “exploding moth” but so many folk are posting about “exploding in a mouth” that moth is dropped from the search.

I found exploding suicidal ants but not moths!

Peter,

That’s downright amazing!

Not exactly P.C.

“No means no!” Screamed the lizard in vain!

We have been to Kanha National Park, India back in March 2020 just before the start of C19, looking for tigers when this jackal came in a hurry down the hill with food in his mouth. I took a few shots from the back of the SUV as he ran to the other side of the road.

What was the victim before it gave its life to the Jackel? Is it a torn of part of a larger prey?
