I wonder how and if the duck is able to digest that shell at all? :shock:

Great action with the herons ^Q^

That flower looks pretty and that fire bug looks amazingly pretty at such a close range. And that despite the fact that I'm not really fond of them when they start invading our backyard after good rains. 0'
