This Tricolored Heron caught my eye at South Farm recently. As is usual when I am shooting at that location, this bird was on the opposite side of the pond from where I was standing. I watched the heron as it waded through relatively shallow water past a shady bush.
Soon it was in deeper water and, as luck would have it, farther from me. I admit it may be my imagination, but as I look closely at lower right edge of the next photo, I see the suggestion of circular wavelets in the water surface behind the lighter portion of the tall blade of grass. The heron seems to be staring in that direction.
Two seconds later, according to the EXIF data in the images, the heron thrusts its bill into the water at that very spot,
then comes up with a small fish. The unfortunate little fish apparently just missed getting away, for the heron barely caught it by the tail.
If you look near the right edge of the two preceding photos, you notice what appears to be a small head watching this event. I suspect this is a turtle, based on the similar appearance of the turtles in my pond at home.
The location from which these photos were taken is shown on the map below. Zoom in for more detail.
