I always admire the the patience of herons. When they are fishing, they often wait patiently for their preys to come, sometimes it can take a couple of hours. Although a large number of herons are often around Hong Kong in the winter, they seem to be standing by the river forever motionless. I often wished that I could witness a successful hunt.
The tide was going out that day and the Heron was standing on a shallow dam waiting for the passing fish.
Suddenly, it saw a fish
Within seconds, the fish was down the heron’s throat!
The efficiency was amazing!
