A great capture of this Heron and its giant meal.

Any serious fisherman or photographer, might be envious of that catch! (Yours & his!) Gorgeous light & detail, Tom. V~
Peter Stahl01-Jul-2009 15:03
Amazing capture for him and you. Did he manage to swallow that one? Awesome job on this one Tom. ~
Tom Torbert01-Jul-2009 14:44
No way... This is a physical impossibility.. What a giant catfish... The heron swallows food whole instead of tearing apart so I can't image that he actually swallowed this whole??? V

You just GOT to love an over-achiever

Carol Breton01-Jul-2009 13:31
You both got a fantastic catch! Can he eat that?
Beautiful image Tom. The clarity, the detail, the special lighting - wonderful work. ~

Maybe bit off more than he can chew? :) Outstanding shot, Tom! Vote
Best to you,
Jeff Waldorff01-Jul-2009 10:52
I bet it took a while for him to swallow that down... or did he just give up? Excellent capture, Tom!

Huge catch, did he make it to swallow?? Vote.

Lovely light. The size of the fish for the bird to swallow is astonishing.
lou_rozensteins01-Jul-2009 07:27
Beautiful light and pose. It looks too big for that bird to handle. Well done. Voted.

WOW! Tom, that is some catch. Did actually attempt to swallow that big fish? Nice shot in what appears to be fading sunlight.
