Sushi Appetizer

Some of the more lackadaisical birds here in Sarasota like to hang out at the Saprito fishing pier and gobble up any handouts that might come their way.  This great blue heron scored a tidbit when an angler tossed some bait to it.  I've seen great blue herons swallow an entire large fish in one gulp.  So, this morsel really must have been just an appetizer.

Our backyard birds should be so well fed!

Great close up.

Hahahahaha! How about a cold one to go with this appetizer?

Sometimes it pays to be lazy!

I call this intelligence, not laziness.

Nice catch - by the heron and the photog!

Herons, like humans, will take the easiest way out!
