Previous Great Blue Heron Eating Starry Flounder
20 of 32 from October 2016

Platichthys stellatus (starry flounder), Ardea herodias (Great Blue Heron)

I'm going with Starry Flounder because of the prominent stripes on the sides of it's body. There were several Great Blue Herons in the water and they were easily finding prey.
