I love the ponds in Fraser Foreshore Park in Burnaby, BC. I get down there for photo shoots often. The previous post featured a heron chowing down on a rodent, but this post is the dreamier side of nature : -).
I watched this heron in Burnaby‘s Fraser Foreshore Park for about an hour today. It was patiently fishing, and got a little fish or two, when it suddenly stabbed at something on the shore and came up with a small mammal.
It swallowed the beast whole, and you can see the heron’s distended neck in the third photo.
Not sure what the prey is, a large vole?
Distended neck as the prey slides down…
