Heron and the Frog

Heron having frog for supper

Frog legs anyone?

The animals in my neighborhood do a FANTASTIC job of keeping me entertained.  I saw this Great Blue Heron land, catch a frog, and have a bite to eat.  We have Gray Herons and Great Blue Herons here, and you will give yourself a headache trying to read about the differences between the two, so let me admit that I am only 99% certain this is the Great Blue, which according to my collection of trusty bird books, is the larger of the two, with gray-blue plumage.  In any case, it IS a Heron, and that IS a frog in it’s mouth.  The circle of life at it’s best…right outside my window.  Who needs the Discovery Channel?  NOT me.  🙂
