Missed opportunity

This painting’s inspiration came from a rare encounter I had while hiking around a local beaver pond in Port Alberni. This beautiful bird is a black-crowned night heron. My presence probably caused her to miss out on a meal: the rough-shinned newt escaped, leaving behind a few bubbles.
