"The one that got away" - Mai Po, Hong Kong

This picture was taken at one of Mai Po's boardwalk hides on a sunny afternoon in late November. I brought the photo file to the UK with me on a memory stick.

I saw the Grey Heron giving this snake a good tug before the snake managed to escape.   Both the Heron and the Little Egret close by manage to look alarmed or excited.

(The snake's head is visible to the right of the mangrove shoot)

Anyway, as far as blogging is concerned, I've let January get away from me.

More postings in February....   I promise !
