Artist's Description

A friend and I were walking along the ocean shoreline at Piper’s Lagoon when we spotted a Great Blue Heron fly onto a rock. No sooner did we have our cameras set up on our tripods when the Heron spotted something in the shallow waters. Its head disappeared beneath the surface for a second and up it came with an eel like fish. lol It flew over to a rock where it consumed its catch before getting back to fishing some more!
