Prey time


A green heron trying to catch its lunch. The female green heron sat there  very focused for a few minutes and catches its prey. The one thing that really amused me was, it cleaned its food in the marshy water before eating. It dipped and cleaned several times and tossed the frog up and down until it completely lost conscious. They swallowed it in one shot. Waited till it completely sent inside its stomach.

we were about 10 people (mostly photographers) around this marsh land and watching these sequence of events.  Usually a shy bird, but not bothered that so many distractions were around it, I was so amazed at the focus of this bird towards its prey. It was a gala show to watch this heron catch its prey.
