A Great Blue Heron, a Showy Egret and a Tri-colored Egret were all in sight. The commotion started just a few yards from us. Wings flapping and then there was a large fish in the Great Blue's mouth. The Snowy Egret hardly moved from his hunting spot while the Great Blue maneuvered to swallow his prey. The hunt, killing and the swallowing lasted 10 minutes.
