Herons, and water/shore birds in general, have developed many unique skills to survive and thrive. This Tri-colored Heron is “tenting” its wings in order to see its prey better. Reflective water is very difficult to perceive a potential catch in but when a shadow is cast over it on a bright day, the water becomes clear. Herons have learned how to create its own shadow by spreading and lowering its wings as it walks deliberately in the shallows, able to pick off fish or frogs in a flash of movement as soon as it detects movement. A fascinating evolutionary skill indeed!
