Artist Statement : "Heron are known to be great fishermen. Fish often seek the shaded part of a stream to conceal themselves from predators; they are also very inquisitive creatures. The heron draws his wings forward to form an umbrella over his head creating shade. He keeps his stance in knee deep water for long minutes at a time, patiently luring in his prey. Every once in a while he will pop his head up to take in what's going on around him, but he returns quickly to his task at hand - fishing for his evening meal." - Calvin & Marie Hunt
