Look at the fierce concentration of the majestic Grey Heron as he scans the water below in search of his next meal. The delicacy and strength of his graceful flight is a delight to behold – yet here we see only the intensity of his gaze. Skilled at fishing, he glides smoothly and silently over the water until the moment comes for a sudden dive, and a few seconds later he emerges splashing from the water with a fish wriggling in his beak. This painting was inspired by a photo that brother-in-law took earlier this year – he is a fantastic photographer with a wealth of wildlife knowledge and an impressive amount of patience.
