Pic of the Day

Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias: Viera Wetlands; Viera, Florida
     On the last day of my recent trip to Florida, I visited the Viera Wetlands.  It was a little slow at the wetlands this trip, but things picked-up when a Great Blue Heron caught a water snake.  I took a lot of images and will post a few more over the next couple of days.

Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias: and Water Snake, Viera Wetlands

When the heron first caught the water snake it was not clear who would win.  At this point the Great Blue was all wrapped up.
