Deadly Strike

Deadly Strike

Reviewing my Feb. 9, 2016, shots I recall my close encounter with this Great Blue Heron which had just caught brunch.  In this case, the bird’s lightning fast bill pierced the skin of the hapless prey.  There was no resistance by the snake as the heron consumed its catch.
