Great Blue Heron in Dana Point Harbor 6-12-12. It's prey is strangely enough is a ground squirrel who's on its way out (was alive at this point).  Two spectators and myself were quite surprised to see this event unfold as most believed these birds to focus on fish, not ground squirrels.

The Black Crowned Night Heron - Dana Point Harbor, CA 6-12-12

This photo is pretty much untouched except to adjust the white balance which was ever so slightly off.  Basically the image is straight out of the camera. If anyone has their doubts or gripes about what the 5D can't do this ought to keep them quiet :)

While I've never seen it myself, it's cousin the grey heron (similar sort of size) is known to take nesting birds when the opportunity arises. Like many predators, herons are opportunists, so while it's surprising, it isn't completely unexpected that it might take a mammal that was stupid enough to get too close.
