How can they stand so still for so long just waiting for an eel or fish to pass by for their tea. This is an Original Watercolour painting of a British Grey Heron. I've seen them here on the Somerset levels in just such a pose, it's amazing to see them.
I love watercolour painting my birds and animals, always doing their eyes first so they can see what I'm doing.
