Delicacy for Lunch!

Description

Whilst on a game drive in Masai Mara a herd of Elephants had blocked the road and we had to wait quite a while they crossed the road.

There was water logged section along the side of the road and Herons and Ibis were busy feeding in the water. Suddenly this Heron got lucky and caught a snake from the grass. It quickly got a hold of the snake from its mouth and ran off from its companions. After having held it in it's mouth for some time it gulped it complete within 5 seconds!
