Heron Floating Island

Looking across my street at the lagoon I saw a portion of the cattails had dislodged during the previous night and was being carried across the lagoon by the current. A closer look showed a juvenile heron was hiding behind the cattails and catching a free ride across the water. He'd spot fish and jump off and then climb back up and camouflage itself within the reeds:)
