This Heron catches a big fish and struggles to eat it, with it stuck wriggling in the neck for some time.

Finishes with the Heron shaking it's wings to finally swallow in a fantastic super smooth slow motion.

Grey herons are large, striking birds often spotted standing motionless at the water's edge. Having found a suitable location, herons stand and wait patiently for the right moment to stab passing prey with their dagger-like beaks. They also wade through shallow water searching for small fish and amphibians. Herons fly with their head drawn back and feet trailing behind. The wing beats are slow and their curved wings form an m-shape.

This is the full length version with the sequence from start to end.
Filmed in high speed with a Casio Exilim EX-F1 at 300fps.
