This green heron appears to be ready to walk on water to make off with the small fish that it has captured.

Taken at Mud Lake in the Ottawa area.

    So intense… great image with such a good display on those wings. Looks like your sun was pretty harsh given that perfectly formed shadow .. so really nice work and exposure. In particular, I like the way you got the variance of subtle color on the back of the wings…
