    i was out on the boat after the breakfast and i saw the craziest thing. this heron somehow ran into a dead treebranch in midflight and got its neck lodged in the wood. i went all around the tree and got a good look and there is no way that someone did this. its a freak accident of natural selection! one thing was for sure it was definitly dead!

    Didn't mean "kinda i guess" on the quality of the pic, I meant on the dead bird being a cool shot :wink: :big_smile:
