Frog-flipping heron

Photo by Nate Chappell/Rex Features
A Yellow-crowned Nigh Heron positions a frog by flipping it in its bill, so that it can swallow the amphibian in one smooth gulp.   Photographer Nate Chappell captured this shot at Kitty Hollow County Park in Missouri City, Texas, south-west of Houston.   Yellow-crowned Night Herons are found throughout the Americas.    They are also known by the names American Night Heron or Squawk.
