They say nature is the best teacher. Survival of the fittest remains the mantra. Living beings in the wild need to learn skills and techniques to trap the prey and survive. Some animals, insects and birds make us marvel at the magnificence of the effort to trap the prey. Canopy feeding technique by Black heron fools birds to take refuge in the shadow, which turns into a death trap.

According to experts, a black heron forms a canopy with its wings like an umbrella to create shade that attracts fish looking for respite from the heat of the sun.


 

The heron hides the reflection of his neck and beak by tucking his head up under one wing. When a fish takes refuge in the shadow, the heron strikes.

 

The primary food of the black heron is small fish, but it will also eat aquatic insects, crustaceans and amphibians.
