Witnessed this yesterday along the [Royal] Canal [behind Croke Park], the heron swallowed it whole! Like a snake eats! The local guy with the boat we were in said he had never seen one do that in all his years. I managed to get these shots with my camNOMNOMNOMNOM

    eh… that’s the way herons eat.

      Herons usually have a set of cutlery but due to not having that apposite digits, they dispense with formalities and gulp in one go, also, by not chewing the fish, they save valuable time for investor facetiming or making the world a better place with end-to-end quantum stacking with reintermediate innovative niches.

      great photo.

      You didn’t see the bit where the heron struck a match and lit the fish and smoked it like a cigarette.

    That’s someones koi carp gone for it’s tea. You really need to keep a net over your pond when there’s herons about.
