A perfect capture my friend. Kudos on your spotting skills!

Amazing beauty in such obviously needed tragedy!

This bird has a striking resemblance to a Night Heron. Once they get a snake, lizard or other reptile in their beaks, it's all over but the flip and swallow.

Not visible in the photo but these birds have a beak with a serrated edge so no, nothing gets away.
