Excellent capture for both of you, Tom! That's a big fish! Probably more then it can swallow! ~V~

Great shot Tom. Did he actually swallow the fish?

Hope you didn't have to wait long for this. I've seen herons patiently standing in water for long periods of time before catching a fish. Voted

I can't believe the size of the fish! Did he actually ate it? Great timing in capturing this shot!

Great capture Tom. Hip deep in mud seems worth it for this prize. Can't imagine how it's ever gonna swallow such a big fish though.
