Heron at the Fall
Being attracted by the serenity of this waterfall.
Waterfalls have this calm and mysterious effect on everybody. First you have to go through the dense vegetation of the rainforest and will first be greeted by the sound of it. After a while of being treated with this hypnotizing and calm sound you are in for a surprise; 'cause without a warning the waterfall will appear right before your eyes.
First thing you're going to do is enjoy this whole spectacle and afterwards all you want to do, is having a fresh nice shower under the waterfall. Keep in mind that you are not alone and there will be somebody lurking around the corner.......
..... like this young Rufescent Tiger Heron for instance. When I was at the bottom enjoying this waterfall it wasn't there, but somehow it emerged from nowhere. I guess this young heron was looking for some fish or crabs and at the same time was enjoying the cool breeze this waterfall was producing too.
I usually see the young Herons at riverside on top of a branch or log near the river.
When they get older their plumage will change into a darker version, like this one.
