This Tricolored Heron was patiently following some small fish up the inlet. Stepping forward slowly, slowly.
Yes, he got a very tiny fish! It looks a little bigger in his shadow, but still hardly seemed worth the time he put in.
The school of small fish inched along, too.
The heron kept following, but got further from the water, for a different vantage point.
The bank is very steep and the late afternoon sun highlighted some interesting layers of color in the dirt.
