[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo at the pond which is in front of my dad's house in Lika, Croatia.
During the summer days this pond is full of different species like frogs, snakes, insects and it is always possible to see moments like this one on picture where snake has caught its dinner but very soon after this shot it lost its dinner due to my dad who came and saved the frogs life.:)

Thanks for looking.

Hello Gordana,
interesting capture.

Hi Gordana,
As opposite to us, snakes can't be vegetarian. It's meat or death. I personally choose never to save a prey unless it is a rare species.
Nice shot of this predation. I wonder if the snake was planning to swallow head first or to go on from the leg. The frog is big. Swallowing from the leg first must cost quite some extra efforts.

Fenomenalna fotografija!!! evo ovo je moj prvi komentar uopće, još nisam pohvatao sve konce s ovom ali valjda će uspijeti!

Lijepi pozdrav iz Hercegovine
