Look how close he is!
I can see his red eye with the white eye ring.
See those long thin red legs?
He looks like he is dressed in his best tuxedo
White throat and belly with that contrast of black
Carefully picking his way through the shallow water
Looking for food with his long, thin, straight black bill.
He pecks and plunges his head into the water
To capture fish and beetles and tadpoles.
Ah! The simplicity and elegance of nature!
