Blue heron's last meal
I took this shot while duck hunting on the Willamette outside of St. Paul, OR. The heron was overly ambitious with his meal choice. At first I was not sure what I was looking at floating in the water. When I realized that it was a heron who died in his attempt at dinner, I had to capture this act of natural selection.
