OT - Guess Who's Coming To Dinner ?

This blue heron landed in our Deodar tree this afternoon. He is looking for gophers from his perch. The gopher is a favorite food for blue heron in this area in the colder months when the river level is down. Once the blue heron spys gopher activity, he swoops down and waits till the gopher comes above ground then spears the gopher and swallows it whole. Amazing! Until I moved here I never realized blue heron are predators for gophers.
