Wade the Tricolored Heron

A Heron doesn't float like a duck. 

It is the strangest thing to see one wading in chin-deep water.

You expect to see alligators and turtles mostly submerged, but not the stately Heron. 

It is just not becoming. The first time you see it, you will think it is a miniature loch ness monster. 

In deep water, they prefer to perch above for a better survey. 

Wade jumped in and walked around up to his eye-balls just after his portrait.
