Great Blue Heron hunting a gopher:

       

One early evening we got a second chance to see the blue heron catch a gopher.

 

  The heron stared for 5 minutes at the  ground         where he expected it to appear.   It took another 5 minutes after he caught the gopher  

  before it was dead.   

 

   

Below is a Great Blue Heron actually diving after a fish showing the amazing and varied hunting skills of this species:
