Frog Legs for Breakfast - Yum!

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Leslie Morris

This Green Heron caught and ate so many frogs that it started to play with them. This bird did eat this one but then then it played for about 10 minutes with the next one it caught! A second Green Heron was hunting nearby. It was amazing to watch these two birds for about 30 minutes before they moved of to most likely nap and digest all the frogs. This image was taken September 30, 2012 using the Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400mm lens. Lens was handheld and I was using my car as a blind.

Location: Cosumnes River Preserve, Galt California
