A Favorite Subject with his Prey

The other day on my morning walk I observed this Great Blue Heron fishing in the small lake near my home. It looks like he has caught a baby bullhead. Below that is my minnow design (one of the Heron's favorite subjects) pasted, stretched and ready to dye. My recent batch of rice paste was easier to handle with this rather challenging stencil.
