A heron is seen here in its natural habitat, searching for food. It has managed to catch a fish in its long beak, from the gushing waters. Nature has gifted this bird with tall legs in order for it to paddle far into the water without getting its feathers wet and a long beak to hunt for fish. Both are ochre in colour, providing brightness to the dull coloured body. The dullness, however, is overlooked when one observes the harmonious overlapping of shapes and shades. The button-like eye seems full of glee, with no sympathy for the hapless victim in its beak.
The entire background is in soft shades of blue and pink, lending tranquility to the ambience. The flowing water in the left corner may not occupy much pictorial space but that's the only element providing movement in the static painting.
