GREAT CATCH WAY TO BE READY FOR THE UNEXPECTED . All the waders have almost bottomless pits for stomachs. Have seen green herons eat enough to fill a grow man. thats if you'd eat sand eels and fingerling trout .

Hope you post the entire meal ;O)

Happy Shooting

This little Cattle Egret was busy snapping up large bugs when it hit the mother lode for breakfast. He rested for a while then resumed hunting. I am amazed at how much these birds can eat!
