Go Fishing Like An Egret

Stay still and look. Be patient.
If you see a fish swim by, grab it quickly!
You must not hesitate! It is all in the beak.


Soon, you will be rewarded with a fish.


To maneuver the fish so you can swallow it, twist your head back and forth while manipulating the fish with your beak until it is in the perfect vertical position.


This manipulation might take many tries. It is especially difficult if your fish fights back.
I almost had it vertically here.


Gulp!
Alas, I am successful and the fish is in me now.
This fishing is hard work. I am already hungry again!

Due to my complete lack of patience, I think I'll stick to visiting the fishmongers.
