A Heron on the Hunt

Rob writes: Yesterday, Stephanie and I joined my in-laws for some hiking at Brown County State Park in southern Indiana. While some of us hiked a longer trail, Stephanie hung back and worked on taking photos around Ogle Lake. She really lucked out when a Great Blue Heron decided to hunt for some frogs right in front of her and she captured the whole event!

This photo was taken just after the heron caught the frog.
The heron proceeded to play with its food for the next 5 minutes.
It finally swallowed the frog whole. You can see the hind legs sticking out of the beak.
The frog created quite the lump in the heron's throat!
Even the most common of birds can offer great entertainment!
