Parins, Kris - Green Heron, Red Mangrove

Watercolor on Arches #140 paper
A Green Heron, perched on a branch over the water, is avidly watching for his breakfast to appear. The mangroves offer him some camouflage from above. The sky and mnagrove are reflected in the still water. Every morning on my walk I see this little guy as I pass by on the boardwalk above, and marvel at his concentration. It was easy for me to capture several reference photos from a few feet away.
