On November 22, 2017 Deb and I visited the Reed Bingham State Park, which is located due west of Adel, Georgia about 6 miles or so. Reed Bingham is owned by the State of Georgia. It is a rather small size park but a very nice and well maintained park.
While there we came across this Great Blue Heron stalking something in the grass around a small pond, which was landlocked away from the main lake about 40 or 50 yards. We slowly walked toward it hoping to get close without disturbing it and, hopefully, capture a few good images of it. All of a sudden it lunged forward to grab something from the high grass around the pond's edge . What it came up with surprised the heck out of us, which was a rather long snake. The Great Blue had grabbed the snake just behind the snake's head and started shaking it about as if trying to kill it we guessed. Of course, we started shooting right away.
Long story short. This went on for about 30 minutes. We watched this heron do everything from shaking this snake to stepping on part of it body and pulling on its head as hard as it could as if trying to break it in half...anything to kill the snake. Finally, the heron did kill the snake and swallowed it whole, then flew off.
I, Bill, captured this image using my old Nikon D7200 camera with a Sigma 150-600mm Lens.
