    I took a bunch of shots but the GBH got worried about me going after his frog so he took off on me before he swallowed it.

    Harry -

    Wonderful capture! You had me LOL just reading your intro before I could even see the image. And the image is remarkable. You can be sure that the next time I come down to Florida I'm leaving my pet frogs in their cage! :biggrin:

    That was the Mayor. He is an eating machine.

    Great shot Harry.

    Yep been after a frog all summer ...lol Oh well one of theses days.

    Seems JR is the one that runs off with the food.. He did that to Frank and I too. He is NOT sharing.

    Think the Mayer could care less......

    Thanks very much Gordon. That GBH kept me guessing. When I first saw him with the frog he was a good bit away so I switched to the 500.Once I had the 500 on he flew real close to me hence the tight in shot I posted. Right after that shot I switched to the 80-400.

    This was the mayor. The only time he gets flighty is when he has some food. he ain't big on sharing. :biggrin:

    You better hurry up and get your frog pic because they are going fast.

    Thanks Trish. Between Gale and your shots of the turtles getting chewed on and my fish and frog posts we are giving fine coverage to the culinary delights of the wetlands. :biggrin:
