I became interested in Egrets and Herons while living in Sarasota, Florida. I had a special fishing spot that had a blue heron living in the area. I started feeding him fish that were too small to keep so that I could study the way that he caught and ate the fish. He started trying to get the larger fish I put in my bucket so I had to quit feeding him. In this painting I painted an egret who has just caught fish. It takes place in a cypress swamp with two other egrets the background.
