A little heron huning

Watching this little heron fishing in Bishan park, and took a dozen shots before it flew off...It was early in the morning about 7 plus when arounding was still a bit dark, photos taken from the bridge, look down in the shallow water down the bridge...


According to Wikipedia, this is a Striated Heron, Butorides striata, also known as Mangrove Heron or Little Heron, they are often encountered at Sungei Buloh Nature Park, so I was surprised to see them in a park just in the center of the city with many housing estate surounding. 

But what, it was looking at a dead fish, a big dead fish, a bit big size to this little heron, normally they eat small fish, there are so many small fish in the water, I can see clearly even far up on the bridge. 
...a lazy little heron catching a dead fish. :)
