Plecostomus (algae eaters), a South American species, have been introduced by aquarium keepers, not necessarily a good idea. However, many birds in this area have roots in South America as well, and they can deal with the armored catfish.

Very nice detail and clarity on the heron, but the timing of the capture with this fish in its mouth adds a big bonus.

Well that's one fish that looks like it's going down fighting! Superb capture.
