Who's the Top of the Food Chain? A.K.A. Cattle Egret Eating Gecko

Cattle Egret, Bubulcus ibis, holding on to a hapless gecko by the foot.  Losing his tail did this gecko no good.  Neither did blending in with the tree bark work to hide this little gecko from those sharp Egret eyes.  This particular egret had made a regular career out of hunting geckos and was going from tree to tree, methodically stalking around each tree looking for geckos.
