Photo of the Week: Big Bird and Toadfish

I took this photo of "Big Bird," as my mother would call the great blue herons that always visit her waterfront on the Poquoson River.  This one speared an oyster toadfish.

Great photo! I'm sure your mother would be proud of you for it!


Thank you Sarah, she would have loved that photo for sure!

Wow! Great picture. (Toads are actually all white meat and reasonably tasty, but, as they say in Maine, "After you clean it, there ain't much to it." Most of the weight is in the skull (and teeth).
