A yellow-crowned night heron catches a frog, Kitty Hollow County Park, Missouri City, Texas - 08 Jul 2012...Mandatory Credit: Photo by Nate Chappell / Rex Features (1822830o) Yellow-crowned night heron tries to position frog so it can swallow it Flipping Frog On The Menu For Hungry Heron Kermit would do well to avoid this particular swamp. One frog found it wasn't easy being green when a heron not only selected it for lunch, but subjected it to some controlled flipping - prior to swallowing it whole. But not before giving the heron a raspberry by sticking its tongue out. Photographer Nate Chappell captured the scene at Kitty Hollow County Park in Missouri City, Texas. He explains: "Each evening for a spell a group of yellow-crowned night herons would fly in to feed on frogs and bugs in the swampy grass there. "These images show a night heron which has caught a good sized frog. "The heron had to flip the frog in the air several times in order to get it in right position to go down the hatch. "Finally it was able to swallow the frog and you can clearly see the tongue of the frog sticking out as it awaits its fate. "The night heron was preoccupied with eating his catch so it allowed me a close approach for some nice photographs."
