Stealth is right. If you are the hunter it's necessary.

Getting this shot would have been a great coup in itself--but then to notice the reflection also--now that's good work. Such a great pose against that old stump.

That's a great shot. We have blue herons in our area and they are never cooperative with having their photo taken.

They are indeed stealthy birds. Great description! And a beautiful reflection shot. He almost looks like part of the stump as straight as he's standing.
