A quiet moment. There don’t have too many of those.
Note; if you enlarge this photograph you can see a small stick, or reed, protruding from under the adults bill. This is a common wound out there. Herons quickly stab into the water for prey, at times getting hurt in the process.
This image was taken about 10 days ago, the adult is still there caring for the now half grown juvenile. No stick to be seen.
