Hi all,

Wondering if someone can help me ID the grub in this image?!i=2563658830&k=xWwmgMG

(In case the link gets broken - - then look for a 
Straw-necked Ibis image either in the recent images or via the Aus Birds 
species accounts.)

I know the ID that i need isn't of a bird but i have a photo of a bird eating 
it! It was so big that the bird had to have a couple of goes at it - first time 
it gagged and had to spit it out!
Its been suggested a Witchetty Grub but would love to know more and what it 
would become?
Photo was taken in Cairns (Centenary lakes) last week.

PS - there is also a few new images in there of the Great-billed Heron i 
photographed at Centenary Lakes too.
