Broken-billed Green Heron with tongue

Broken-billed Green Heron with tongue

Through the viewfinder I did not notice that this Green Heron had a bill with a broken tip.  The injury apparently does not hinder the bird’s ability to hunt as it looks quite healthy.  The tongue action is something I did intentionally capture.   Taken Sep. 8, 2014, at the Ridgefield NWR.    Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f5.6, ISO 1000, 500mm, 11:14 a.m.
