This is a new area for me but following on from yestersdays post on fishing; I thought I would try an animated GIF of the heron and his catch. From catching it to swallowing, it was gone it five/six seconds and 18 pictures. To get a smoother animation I reckon I would of had to shoot a sequence of 54 images! Not sure the camera's buffer would cope with that. Any way the GIF is below, think you will get the idea of the Heron's efficient technique.
