We watched this Great Blue Heron as he stood in an oyster bed, struggling to get what appears to be a huge worm down his gullet. He finally succeeded in swallowing the wriggly creature.
Despite the gory look of the hook and bloody wound on the mouth of this piggy perch, this fish lived to fight (off predators) another day. Susan removed the hook seconds after I took the shot and returned him to the shallow waters where we fished on Wednesday. I had my fish eye lens and we thought it would be quite funny to take a fish eye shot of a fish eye so we did.
