Sometimes putting someone behind the bars is actually cool.
*I did this for my good* haha😄
My friend was happy with the punishment.
What's your take?

A Hunter Par Excellence-
Usually standing silent at the edges of water bodies away from the crowd is a grayish-blue bird called The Striated/Green-backed Heron. A master hunter with all the perfect tools to go about its business, the Striated Heron hunts alone and almost always hunts right. Standing dead still in shallow waters or perched just above the surface of it, if it has the liberty of a hanging tree, this supreme predator is always on the look out for small fishes, frogs or aquatic insects. When standing in the water, it moves so steadily that it’s entire movement of raising the foot and putting it down again barely creates a ripple. However for a Heron, it is a very short bird, being at a disadvantage unlike the taller cousins like the Grey Heron. However it has a secret weapon, it’s neck. The Striated Heron’s neck bone acts like a hinge which allows it to use it as a great vantage point and also allowing it to strike at its prey lightening quick. Like a spring released after being compressed, it lunges its neck at its prey which generally stands little chance of an escape.
Widespread across the globe, in Africa the Striated Heron is classified as Butorides striata atricapilla.
It was an exciting half an hour that I spent in Kruger National Park, watching this skilled fisherman at work!! Striated Heron,
