Failure To Launch
Description: This Black Crowned Night Heron visits the Koi pond every day looking for a free meal.
Yesterday he got the catch of the day which was more than he bargained for.
He could not get it down his gullet so he attempted to fly to the top of the garden shed but crashed half way up due to the weight of his prey.
He settled for landing on another rock while he contemplated his dilemma. He eventually let the fish go which swam merrily on its way.
