Incredible! Watch great blue heron swallow huge fish

David Dickinson created this dramatic video photo essay of a great blue heron spearing and swallowing a huge carp in the floodplain of the Rio Grande in New Mexico’s Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge on October 29, 2013.

He said the whole thing – from soup to nuts, if you will – took 11 minutes.
