Green Heron eyeing its potential prey

This photo is showing a Green Heron perched on a log sticking out of the water at a local park with a pond. This bird was waiting to trounce on a bug or tiny fish for its next meal. The sun was at the perfect angle shining down on this gorgeous bird when I happened to see it from a nearby bridge while on a walk.
