    Great Blue Heron - Ardea Herodias
    I saw one of these Great Blues get eaten by a gator in Ellenton.  I was feeding it small bream (bluegills) that I was catching.  It ate 5 or 6 and then skimmed across the pond a foot above the water.  It kind of dragged it's feet before it landed on the other side and just as it folded it's wings the water erupted and I saw a big gator tail flip above the water and, just like that, it was all over.  Mother Nature at work.
