14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Great Blue Heron holding onto an eel in Victoria, BC.

This Great Blue Heron held on to an eel it caught as the eel squirmed trying to be released from the Herons grip. The Heron soon after this picture swallowed the eel and I could see it squirming going down the Herons long throat.
