This helpless fish stood no chance when it unwittingly swum past this wily hunter and was snapped up in seconds. The Great blue heron perched motionless on a log while it surveyed the water surrounding it. And sure enough the bird's patience paid off as the unsuspecting fish drifted past and the heron duly pounced.

The last moments of the fish was captured on camera by Christopher Schlaf at a pond near his hometown of Romeo, Michigan, US.
