Black-crowned Night Heron catching fish against the current

A black-crowned night heron catching a fish, in a nature reservation a few minutes from a residential neighborhood. Often, we go about our daily lives not really stopping to look at the (dwindling) presence of nature around us, in our very own backyard.
