Tough Meal


I've seen great blue herons eat everything from snakes to stingrays but I was sure that this softball sized blowfish was going to be too much.  This bird wasn't giving up and kept stabbing away until the fish deflated and then flew off with it's meal.  I've never tried blowfish (which can be very toxic) but over in Japan it sells for almost $200 a plate so I'm sure this heron thought it was worth the effort.
