Thematic Photograph - Feeling reflective

Carmi at the blog "Written, Inc." posts a photographic challenge each week at Thematic Photographic. This week, the theme is "Feeling reflective."

This blue heron wades in the shallow water of the Fox River in Geneva, Illinois, keeping an eye out for a meal.

Though the river flows more quickly in mid-stream, here in the shallows it's as still and reflective as a mirror. I watched him for a long time. He barely moved, just stretched out his neck, intently peering, a couple of times.

Patient fisherbird will be rewarded.

I love pictures of these birds, Aunt Snow.

That is great! You must have been very quiet and patient! I love watching herons, but not when they eat young mallards!

You appear to have caught another bird flying by as well.
