I was amazed at the efficiency, and tenacity that these birds fished.  In this instance, this Heron netted TWO fish at once.  I spent about an hour and he never stopped fishing or eating.  He was essentially an eating machine- unbelievable!

More an IL-76 minus the tail assembly as the wing attaches to the top of the fuselage...
