White-necked Heron gets the last crayfish

23 May 2016

WHITE-NECKED HERON - Kleinton, Qld.

For days I had witnessed this patient White-necked Heron stalking puddles that remained in a local dam, drying up in the drought.  Every day, he was there patiently perusing the puddles in search for what remained in the mud.  I counted him there for over 7 days and took these photos on about day 5. The dam has now completely dried up and the heron has moved on.
