Artist's Description

I took a series of photos of this Yellow-Crowned Night Heron as it ate this crawfish for breakfast. At first, I thought it was just playing with the crawfish as it kept throwing it around and shaking it in its beak. Then, my son helped me realize what it was doing—breaking off the pointed, jagged claws and feelers that would have made for a lot of discomfort going down. By the time the heron swallowed the crawfish, all its sharp-edged parts had been snapped off! Pretty clever! This photo was taken at the rookery/bird sanctuary at Lake Martin in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana.
