In a landscape of water, rocks, and thick foliage, two herons attempt to catch a moth that flies above them. The herons are characterized by their brown, black, and white feathered bodies with yellow feathers around their eyes, dark green feathers on their heads, and long, pointed beaks. They heron on the left is also characterized by his body shape with an elongated neck and large talons.
