20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A great blue heron catches a dragonfly.

This great blue heron was standing around on a little mud bank when he zeroed in on something and grabbed it with his beak. I dwasn't even sure it was a dragonfly at first and didn't confirm it until I saw the photo.
