Black Heron

2010.5.15 Black Heron

This bird is a clever bastard. He is standing in water, making a perfect circle with his wings over the water. If he stands absolutely still, a dumb fish will come right under his beak looking for shelter. This poor fish will think he has found the shade from a nice tree or bush growing out of the water – and not a clever hungry bird looking for dinner.

It’s both a beautiful sight, and a brilliant hunting strategy.
