Heron hunter

Herons are peculiar birds.
They're gawky, ungainly, and yet possess a grace when stalking something that is second to none.
Silently, quietly, walking with their big feet carefully landing each step.
Their expression is frozen and they will stop when they think their prey has spotted them.
Then the ever so slight turn of the head, keeping their prey in focus.
Then comes the snap, and the prey is plucked from the water.
Watch them, they are fascinating!
