A Slippery Catch to Dispatch

By MarkHughes  
I was lucky enough to get very close to this Grey Heron who was not bothered by my presence in the slightest, he was happily fishing away catching and eating one after another. He then caught this eel, which was a bit of a handful and had to be taken to the lake shore to be dispatched before swallowing in one go. Photograph taken at the Lodmoor Nature Reserve, Weymouth, UK.
