I was watching a sandhill crane nest when a little blue heron caught my eye. He was in the process of catching an eel of some type. (Let me know id if you know it.)

Really a great series, Allan. Amazing how one's luck seeing things like this increases in proportion to the time spent in the field :)

I'm pretty sure that is not an eel believe it or not but a large salamander. The red gills on the outside of its head in the first image are the clue.
