Willet Gets a Big One


This Willet managed to spear a crab.  Compared to human scale this wiggling crustacean is tiny in the extreme. But the Willet doesn’t look equipped in the jaw and gullet department to handle something this size.  An egret, a heron, or a gull would inhale this little crab without a second thought.  But the Willet quickly realized it was outmatched and dropped the prey, still waving its extremities, back into the muddy water, probably traumatized for life.
