Retired CPO Loc: Travel full time in an RV
 
Sunday Morning. Really slow, really warm, really humid. The gators were loving it, they were laying up on the banks everywhere, and some big boys too! Even the Dragons and the Birds were few and far between! But I persevered!
I hope you like.

Thank you. That's the closest I've ever been to a Great Blue Heron trying to swallow a fish! It was so hot he didn't want to leave the shade!

I imagine once it was swallowed it would be mighty hard to cough back up... almost like hooks. Great set!

I understand Qaa!

Yes, a catfish. Looks like the ones people keep in aquariums and then let go into the lake when it gets too big! It's illegal for good reason, but people still do it! I've seen GBH's swallow them before, but it's tough with those long spines. He was having a tough time, I don't know if he got it down. I watched and photographed him for quite awhile but had to give up on him and get out of the sun, sweat drifting off my nose and onto the camera!

Thanks, Jack! I was beginning to think I wasn't going to get anything, which would be a first for Lake Apopka! And would disappoint my Fan Base Couldn't do that, I would have to refund tickets!
