Oh my goodness...like a heron...

VioletSky

Wow!. You still got some great shots. My heron shots are all standing perfectly still - nice but it would be neat to get some dramatic movement!

Stewart M

Great set of pictures - I seem to struggle to get herons and such like with fish!

Dearest Sallie; Good Morning from Japan♪ Wow; Yes what Great Captures of Anhinga(snake bird) having a fish! I googled the bird and learned that it's in Cormorant family. The picture it tossing the fish is amazing :-)
And for me, your last phrase "Hard luck being the bottom of the food chain" is really impressive and also educational. Haha, fishing lover husband stared each of your photographs for a while, p:-)

Thanks for your kind comments Dear friend♡♡♡ I am going to visit my cousin celebrating her son. Visiting you again after coming home.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Great set of photos, I thought the fish would get away too. Hard to tell how it didn't from that first picture!

Yogi

What a catch!! and a great photo.

Sara D.B.

Amazing series of photos! Well captured!
The images are impressive. I almost feel like something stuck in my throat. :)

Janice / Dancing with Sunflowers

Very interesting series of photos - well done on your quick-fire skills!

Anne@GritandGiggles

What a great series of photos showing us all how they eat. So many birds just eat things whole.

Gaelyn

I am always amazed when a bird swallows a fish whole. Down the hatch. Nice series.

Al

What an awesome thing to capture!

Lois

Wow! That is a great series of shots Sallie.

Sally in WA

Great sequence of photos.
Part of nature that the predator becomes the prey.
Hard to grasp when it comes to our pets are exposed to such risks, but that is life.
Thanks for visiting my site.
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Les Fous du Cap (france)

NatureFootstep

wow, that´s a tricky thing to catch. You got some really cool images here :)

Carletta

Great capture of the action Sallie!

Felicia

Wow Sallie great series, you were in the right place at the right time.

I do feel a bit bad for the fish and it was pretty good sized.

Margaret Birding For Pleasure

Fabulous action shots.

KJ

Wow - great series of photos. Love that you captured the bird in action (the fish probably didn't love it so much!)

gerald

well you captured the capture there - nature in the raw

Jenn Jilks

Isn't that amazing!

Penny

Absolutely amazing shots! Wow! I've seen heron eating from afar, but, this is certainly up close and personal, Sallie. Anhinga. Off I go to Googleville.

diane

A super series of shots. Wow they are pretty clever at fishing. They have to turn the fish so that it goes down head first then the spines don't stick in their gullet.

Gattina

Wow ! you caught the right moment !! Excellent photos !

sylviakirk

Awesome captures!!! WoW!!! Really amazing, Sallie!!

ak-ut

phenomenal shots !

Rajesh

Wonderful sequence of shots.

Mickie Brown

Sallie, What AMAZING photos--it is hard enough just to be nearby when something like that is going on, but to catch it with your camera is incredible. Nice work. Yes, all those flowers are blooming in my yard right now. I can always count on the iris, roses, and peonies to "do their thing" year after year. It is quite lovely right now, but they will all be gone much too soon. Hope all is well with you. Take care. Mickie :)

Karen, Pixel Posts

Now that's a mouthful!!! Great shots!

Gail

Phenomenal catch for you and the anhinga! It's amazing the huge fish they manage to get down the hatch. Amazing series of shots!

Sondra-SC

wow WHAT A SERIES OF THE ANHINGA AT WORK!

The anhinga had a great meal and you had wonderful documentation of it all. Hoped your Mother's Day was simply fabulous.

Carver
