Little Blue Heron with Frog

Melissa James

Tarpon Springs, FL, United States

While photographing sparrows I heard this loud “meowing” sound and had thought a hawk might have grabbed a kitten. But when I turned around it was this juvenile Little Blue Heron who had caught a frog who was crying quite loudly hoping it might convince the heron to drop him. In the end, it attracted the attention of a Red-shouldered Hawk who stole the frog from the heron.
