    This is such a fascinating photo. This happened near your pond? Such varied wildlife!

    Yes, this was a few feet from our pond. Frog caught in a small (3 x 5 ft pond) in a small suburban garden (21 x 21 ft).

    The heron caught the frog, then moved away a few feet to wait for the frog to stop squirming and then moved back to the pond and dipped the frog in the water several times. Never seen such behaviour. Perhaps to lubricate it? The bird then flew away still clamping the frog in its bill. It probably saw me moving behind the window.

    Thank you. We have a great camera. Well, frog legs are reputed to be very tasty… can’t blame the heron, really.
