    Hi Ben,
    Thank You
    Yes it is Funny :>)))

    Love to get them when they are fishing, and get a good catch. This Little guy should be full for awhile.
    Can not believe the size of the fish and other things birds can eat.

    Hi Frank,

    This little bird got him pretty quick. They must be alot stronger than the size they are for sure. Did not take him long too get the frog eaten. Froggy was wiggling around for sure.

    This was a fun and suprize catch for me for sure.
    This time out of the driver side window.

    Gee I wonder if I should just stay in the car and shoot. Seems to work better :>)))

    Thank you

    Hey Gale -

    Great capture! Are you sure the grebe didn't give up and spit the frog out? No way the rest of the frog fits inside that little guy!

  7. Gale I love it. Those frog legs sticking out and all. It reminded me of the green heron shot I got a while back eating the frog. I just went to a high school photo night last Thursday for the kids in art. My picture of that heron eating the frog was a huge hit with the kids. Thanks for sharing. Looks like you had a great day, I am most envious.
     
  8. Gale, what an awesome catch both by the bird and you! Wow, I can't believe I ate the whole thing! :)
     
  9. Great catch, Gale! One of these days I'll need to concentrate on getting these kind of shots. Yesterday I was having fun with flight shots (and Harry's 500mm!!!)

    Hi George,
    Yeah he sure ate the whole thing. Not sure how. First part went down pretty quick.. But man those long legs and feet. Geeezzz

    Don't know how they do it. Pretty amazing to watch. I am learning that all birds are just pigs :>))) lololol

    Thanks for the kind words.

  16. At Le Bec Fin here in Philly frog legs go for 22.00 the grebe got off cheap. WOw what a great catch.
     
  17. Great catch, Gale!!!. Finally I can see one (Uhh, only half one) since the time we searched them in Viera.:smile:

    I don't think the little Grebe is trying to eat the frog. I'm quite sure that the frog is trying to sufocate him.:biggrin:
