Great Blue Heron With Catfish - Donnelly, Idaho

Here is a photo I took this summer a short distance from where I live. This Great Blue Heron is trying to figure out how to avoid the spines on this Bullhead Catfish it has speared in order to swallow it. If you enlarge this photo by clicking on it, you can see the heron's sharp bill has completely penetrated the catfish and is sticking out the other side.
