So many good images, Zebra particularly struck me from William as did the posts from Chris.

My contributions are a Bee and a butterfly.

Nicely done, but this is actually a hoverfly (Syrphidae), or a 'bee imitator'. Bees taste bad to birds, so these guys try to  camouflage themselves along those lines.

Egrets, storks and herons will eat anything that moves and they can fit in their mouths. They are the least discriminationg of any predator I can think of. They eat other birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, insects, you name it and they will eat it. Google images for "heron eating" it's pretty amazing and the egrets aren't much more pickey.
