This wooden trunk is the conduit for the canal water under the road between some old rice field impoundments, not far from where Snowy Egret Fishing on the Fly
Just before I took this series the Tricolored Heron nabbed a fish then landed back on the trunk support.
I waited, and waited then finally!
All that skittering on the water surface is from fish trying not to be lunch.
Unfortunately he flew close to the canal edge and I couldn’t get out far enough to keep the grass from interfering with my shot.
This time the heron kept flying down the canal with his catch.
