Hanging By A Thread

Nature has a beautiful side and nature has a "survival" side. Below is a photo of a great blue heron with its foot dangling, held in place only by a slender ligament. I assume a gator almost had a meal. The heron escaped an instant death, but for a wading bird, walking will be tough.
