Blue on Blue

Blue on Blue_1

My approach hidden by
willow saplings

Unsuspecting heron
stares into the blue

Neck straight
stretching to strike

Silver flash
smelt from water to beak

Head back
fish swallowed with a shake

Salmon leaps, mid-river
heron turns to watch

Turns back to rocky shore
easier game
