A Tricolored Heron "knee deep" in a Duck Weed covered pool of water.

It's interesting to watch birds hunt in conditions like this. They wait and wait and then strike at fish or other small critters under the Duck Weed cover.

My guess is that they are watching for almost imperceptible surface movements in the Duck Weed.
