Heron and Monitor

I went to the awesome Singapore Botanical Gardens today.   There I saw a Little Heron doing a bit of stalking.  He stood really still in the water for ages then darted his beak into the water and caught something to eat.  Meanwhile a Malayan Water Monitor was creeping up on him.  The hunter became the hunted.  The heron managed to fly off at the last minute.

I drew this based on photos using my watercolor pencils.  I’m reading Watercolor Pencil Magic which is a neat book.  It looks like I will need more practice before I can have the magic.
