WOW - -that's all I can say: WOW!
Love those photos. I'll bet it took a long nap after that strugle.I like my Catfish skined, filletedand fried. LOLless work that way.
Nah, not tired at all. He does looks overwhelmed a bit.
Gosh, I'm surprised he doesn't choke on that huge fish!
I'll not tire of this story. This is incredible. What great images!
And today is April Fools day. Just wait till my Madeline wakes up.Ohhhh wow!!!!!
did you run out and give him some tums after he finally got that thing down his throat ?those are amazing photos !!!
now that is alot to swallow....can't wait for the next chapter...
Poor thing... he looks so determined, though!Waiting to see what happens!
Now I am worried about our blue heron lady's mate because I have not seen him in awhile.....More pictures, please!
More great shots!!
Oh my. I really didn't think he was actually going to swallow it. I thought he would pick and tear at it. Guess I don't know my herons.
Great shots!Have a nice weekend.
Terrific shots. He must not have had any problem with those whisker 'stingers' that catfish have. I would think that would hurt trying to swallow them, but I guess that's why I'm not a Great Blue Heron.
What's that saying? "your eyes are bigger than your stomach. I'm with Nancy regarding the choking.
Did he bite off more than he could chew?
Wow, how did you manage to capture these moments? It's great!Have a loveliest of weekends, fill it up with joy xxxx
That a big fish to swallow. What a wonderful slice of wildlife in action. Who would ever tire of something like this?--Inger
These are wonderful!
Incredible I am glad it did not turn into the fish that got away story. I am so jealous I would have loved to see this. Great catch his and yours. B
Have you ever saw one sitting? As I was looking at the pictures I thought of that. I always see them standing or eating but never sitting on eggs.
I feel the need to cheer "Go, Buddy! You got it!".I am always floored by what water birds can swallow!Amazing shots!
We're back and a BIG thank you for following along with my meager posting while touring the Southwest. Let me say I found Texas wonderful, the people too. I just should have stayed there instead of moving on. I have a heron story to tell from Texas, but I like your tale so much better. Great shots.
such a dilemma. for both parties! ;o)
What amazing photographs. I can't wait to see the next set.
I've got to see how this comes out....or goes in...or whatever happens! What a cliff-hanging series!
Don't tell me the bird choked!?
Does he get choked and you have to do the Heimlich maneuver on him??? I could not resist that...it looks to big for his mouth. Can't wait to see the finish.
I can't believe he can eat that thing, it's huge!
Did you hear that?? I swear, in that first pic the catfish is hollering HELP! HELP! It's hard to believe the Heron gets that fish down. But I'll be here tomorrow to find out!!
ulp - gag
Hi there, from up in "Damn Yankee Land"! Mmmm, you DO talk to us, don't you???? -evil giggles-Anyway, I left a comment on 'Lady Bug From TX' picture blog, about her squirrel. Then read your comment, and had to go back and make another one myself. LOL! I copy it below...-------Damn it, 'Texwisgirl' he is ballsy, isn't he??? -chuckle--------repeat -chuckle-
Bravo....Those are very clear & close pictures.
Great action shots!
Eating like that reminds me of our dog Buddy.....only with feathers! He'll eat anything that doesn't eat him first. Excellent series!
It kills me how he can stuff a big fish like that down his throat! Simply amazing!
Looks like it's going to get it down!The suspense is killing me!
Great captures!Who needs National Geographic..if you can get the ranch report!!Have a good weekend :)
Love the story! What next! What a pig....the whole fish? I can't wait to see whats next!
Fantastic shots! Great timing.
At last, he/she has a big dinner.
I'm loving this blue heron story here. and your blue bonnet photos are magnificent. but back to the heron. I was unaware that they caught and ate such large fish. I was thinking they ate minnows or some such. shows you what I know. but this guy is fascinating. great story telling! have a great weekend texwisgirl.
Can't wait to see the attempt to work that down his throat!
not tired, waiting to see if he gets that giant fish down all the way. the fish looks like it is yelling for help
The photos are very nice, i love it
Now this is the kind of drama I can follow..At leas the gave you lots of great pictures.I love this.
Hi Texwisgirl, How interesting! The Great Blue Heron is a magnificent waterbird! I can't wait to read your next installment of the story. Great pictures!
Those photos are SO AWESOME!!! I bet you really love having your pond. Did you dig it ~ or is it a natural water hole?? Thanks for sharing!
Maybe eyes too big for its belly but I guess it just might succeed.Great action series. Cheers FAB.
Great shots of an amazing bird.
Oh, gosh. do you think those fins will perforate his GI tract??? Yikes!
What a cliffhanger....awesome shots!
Please more! Very interesting.
WOW, WOW, WOW....such amazing shots. 55 comments, do you think we are tired?!?! can't wait for the finale!!!! xo
I still can't believe he wanted to eat it all. Must have been really hungry. At least it should hold him for a while. How lucky were you to be right there to see it all.Great catch.B.
If you move the pictures fast enough, it's like those old fashioned movies. :)They just swallow the fish whole. They must have a strong digestive system, huh?
Okay...so I am a bit slow..and I just getting caught up with my blog reading...so now I see the catfish!!!
Wow, what a great post! Hugs from Luzia.
Never seen one with a fish that big. It should have to eat for a week :).
Nature is truly amazing!
Wow, that is fantastic! Awesome sequence! He really did take on a rather big meal, but got 'er done! I've really missed your photos, T! Great job!
