Great egret with mouse

This great egret finds the grasslands of the Parks Reserve Forces Training Center, aka Camp Parks, to be an excellent hunting ground. Its bill was already quite bloodied before it caught the mouse.

In no time, the mouse was swallowed whole.

Eek!

    Great photography! Just eating breakfast as I opened it. Wish I’d waited a bit as my last swallow was going down along with Elbert Egret’s.
