Green heron showing of his catch.  by dutchothotmailcom

Green heron showing of his catch.

This was me during shooting this scene; "oh wow, oh yeah, oh no...". The green heron manipulated the frog and let is slide head first into the beak. It was not an easy swallow. I watched the whole process and lost my own appetite for a few hours.
Truly an 'ugh' moment but an incredible photographic experience! This is fantastic. And nature is what it is...

What an amazing capture with all those wonderful details! Which mode did you shoot this in Esther? As I am still trying to figure out my camera, your iso sounds so high but is perfect for this shot.
April 16th, 2021  
Awesome!!
April 16th, 2021  
Oh my what a catch for you. Is the frog still alive when swallowed?? You should work on wildlife magazines and with Mr attenborough!
April 16th, 2021  
Oh I would have too, poor Mr Frog. Great shot.
April 16th, 2021

I agree with Taffy great shot and an ugh moment,
A great catch for you and the heron but not so lucky for the frog.

@ludwigsdiana I use my camera in manual setting, I was schooting towards the dark area which raised my ISO. I can't edit much yet but use the noise reduction tool to smooth things out.

While I would not like to eat a frog, it makes for a stunning photo.

Spectacular capture - I had to smile at the narrative (oh, no) - I would thought the same thing.

Great capture but hard to watch. Yesterday I photographed an osprey devouring a fish and had the same reaction.
