The following photograph depicts a Great Blue Heron in flight with a baby shark in its beak!
The photograph above is absolutely real! Those Great Blue Herons are fierce birds ad would eat anything given a certain size range. See below a blown up view on the beak:
Birds have a very powerful digestive system. The photograph below is another Great Blue Heron catching a Sea Horse this time.
Is not that another amazing catch? See below a blown up.

ANSWER TO “Secrets for attractive blurs”: The first blur of Crows flying off was taken at 1/15 of a second shutter speed, while the Double-crested Cormorant was taken at 1/30 of a second shutter speed. This is partly why the ghosting effect is stronger with the Crows, as the shutter speed was a bit slower.
