Miss the strike, catch swallow-up


Missed the strike but caught the swallow-up as Red-bellied Black Snake devours probable Rocketfrog, Orient Station yesterday. 


Puffing up never wins against determined snake.


Snake inexorably moves forward over victim.


Only two pitiful  toes to disappear. Followed by pathetic last croak from inside snake.


Moving on ... another frog on the air?

As you know snakes are not my favorite - but - you do take amazing photos of them!

Hi Mick: luck with some knowhow. Brown Falcon was acting oddly as I drove by. Stopped to try for flight pix and heard frog in distress. Hunted around grazing area and eventually found snake.
