Soaring 'in motion'

I watched this heron sit contently at the edge of the lake for a long time... I knew I had a potential motion shot, but the heron seemed like it wasn't going to move for anything. People walked by, dogs barked, children called out, etc. Then some fishermen, put a fish out on the dock as a snack for the heron, and sure enough, she swooped up and elegantly grabbed the fish! It's fun to be keeping a keen eye for motion this week.

through what magic did you get that heron to sit still for so long, and then take off at the exact right second?!

Lovely magic photo.
