Re: *WARNING* Hunter & the Hunted

Very interesting shots. Black-crowned Night-Herons are known for this type of behavior and not just on ducks:

It was pretty gut-wrenching to watch the fate of this Great Egret chick this past spring from the time it fell out of its nest to the time it went down the hatch of the heron.

That second picture of yours with the helpless duckling being carried away to be devoured is pretty gut wrenching as well. Such is life for a young bird, it is amazing that any survive at all.

Very nice work.
