Eat That Frog!

To some, it may be a self help book on procrastination.

To this Black-crowned Night-Heron, it’s breakfast ๐Ÿ˜Š

With some patience, on both my part and the heron’s, together we were able to see this through to the final act. Well worth the wait.

    1. Thank you! I’m finding folks are not a big fan of the poor frog giving it up for the heron, though! I’d not ran across something like that before, I was quite fascinated!

    1. Well, I actually think he was not alive, as he did not hop away when the heron dropped him. But it is kind of sad ๐Ÿ˜ข I was mostly fascinated when I noticed the heron with the frog.
