I’ve never seen a bird shake water off like a dog does – wouldn’t want to get in the way of him when he’s got his eyes locked and his talons in the “load” position!
There are 3 sequences in this one video:
1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike.
2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to grab his prey.
3rd sequence he captures a big old fat fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!
This is incredible to watch (best viewed in full screen mode)…enjoy
And The Joke For Today Is:
One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when I noticed a dead bird. My friend shouted….. ‘Look at that dead bird!’ Someone looked up at the sky and said…’where?’
Today’s topic is ants. For the last few months we have had a lot of tiny black ants crawling all over our fences etc, and at night instead of going back to their nest they curl up together in little bunches. Now they are in the house doing the same thing. I said to the spouse that they look like sleeper cells planning an attack. The ones inside the house don’t seem to move at all just clump together but the clumps are getting bigger and there are more of them. ( should be dangerous type music here like Jaws or something) I have never seen ants behave this way before. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Do they know something we don’t? Is there going to be a lot more rain, tsunami, cyclone, earthquake? I am getting worried. Or do they plan on taking over our house by sheer numbers?
