It’s all about perspective

A week ago, I was walking on one of Tranquilo Bay’s trails and I saw an image that reminded me of the yellow rat snake / Central American wooly opossum incident.

This time, a big bird jumped close to me and flew away to a high branch where it stopped.  It was a beautiful adult Rufescent Tiger-heron.  It seems to like that area of the trail.  But what caught my attention was a “rope” that it had hanging from its bill.  I instantly put up my binoculars and I realized that it was a snake that it had in its beak.

This situation led me to think that, most of all living things play one of two roles in nature’s theater – hunter or prey.  Each performance is all about perspective.
