A Tricolored Heron with a large tadpole it just caught.

Moments later the Heron dropped the tadpole and made no effort to retrieve it.

Not sure why. Maybe too big, though I don't think so. Or maybe they are not tasty. Or maybe, with the easy pickings in the shallow water, the Heron is just getting picky.
