Gray Stalker

Small fish beware! The gray stalker is wading among the weeds looking for you. I once came upon a Great Blue Heron on the Housatonic River, which was doing it's best to swallow a foot-long fish. The determined bird tried over and over with no luck. Eventually my presence was too much for the bird, and it flew upriver a bit, still fixed on that fish and eyeing me as if I might take it away.
