Another from the snake vs Great Blue Heron series.

I have had quite a few people ask me about the outcome of this 'battle'. Well, it lasted about 30 minutes, with the Heron unable to get out of the snake's grip. But, persistence paid off on the part of the heron, as it's constant shaking and banging eventually wore the snake out. It was amazing how the heron knew the distance at which to keep the 'biting end' of the snake at bay. It was quite the spectacle. So, final score:

Heron 1 Snake 0
