"One-Minute Mindfulness with Matt Wolf: A Heron Fishing"

This video was captured in Clinton, New Jersey. A focused heron was spotted near a waterfall. Watch and enjoy this amazing creature who appeared hungry. I suggest watching it at least once without sound. This makes the sight of the water more vivid and blocks out some of the background noise.
