Yellow Crowned Night Heron
What a terrific shot you got of this young Yellow-crowned Night Heron. Very good detail allowing us to view it's beautifully marked plumaged and bright orangish eye. I'm sure the crab has a different opinion of the event:)
I must say your video is even more impressive, I like the little swaggering dance it gives just before it picks up the crab. I can't imagine what it must feel like swallowing something whole that has legs and claws as it goes down. Gives me the willies :0

Wicked shot Brenda. I'm jealous. Perfect focus as well. Can't beat that. Colours and details are great. I like the frame job, but a bit more space above his head might be nicer. This frame does give the illusion of him jutting forward, so that's a bonus too. A very exciting shot Brenda. A pleasure. TFS Trevor
