One-bite Meal, Great Blue Heron

While spending Christmas with our Florida family my son Chad and I slipped out early one morning to visit the Viera Wetlands. After a decent morning of photograph and with the sun rising high into the sky we decided to drive one more lap around the dikes before calling it a day.  Moments later we spotted a great blue heron with a greater siren grasp securely in its bill.  Knowing there was little time to spare I braced the 600mm lens on the car door and quickly shot this sequence of the bird swallowing the huge meal.
