I know, Great Blue Heron images are very common but did you look at the size of that fish? I was treated to quite a show as I watched the Great Blue Heron spear this fish repeatedly and lose it and spear it again and again. The fish was still alive and struggling and almost got away. Then the Heron attempted to fly. It was unable to get airborne with this big fish so he stumbled over into the weeds and laboriously maneuvered it until he finally swallowed this big fish!
