Heron with young mallard

By Ted447
Took this a few years ago at Martin Mere, not very pleasnt to see but I was focusing on the Heron when it suddenly darted forward and grabbed this duckling, the mother went beserk ,but a minute later it took another.

Nature is not always nice to look at... but this is it...
Right time and place for you.........wrong time and place for the duckling. Sad
Well captured.

Nature's Food chain is very cruel Ted. I must remember that when eating my Lamb chops tomorrow.
