It seems to be game-over for this duckling in the top photo, as a large heron snatches it from a pond near Dublin, Ireland, and carries it to a treetop for a tasty meal. But the duckling wriggled mightily and escaped the heron's clutches. It fell from the treetop back into the pond to paddle about for another day.
