Wow, thank you so much, Charlie; most appreciated! :-))
You are quite right, the heron is amazingly patient. I enjoy looking at them stalk a fish in the shallow water. The way they move is otherworldly.

Well spotted and captured Val. I think it's been a difficult week for us all and some of us even had to make do with ducks ... how uninteresting! ;)
13 months ago.
Valfal has replied to autofantasia
Thank you so much, Paul! :-))
I agree that it's been a difficult week for all of us, especially since it was challenging just to find a bird to photograph! But I don't underestimate the beauty of a humble brown duck; in your case you have demonstrated that they can be just as interesting as their more colorful cousins if they are photographed under the right conditions! ;-)

I hope you realise Val that I was simply teasing you and there was no real need to expand on your thought processes, but thanks for clarifying matters anyway! ;)

Thank you so much, Sami! Since I couldn't get close enough to any bird during the shoot, I decided to play up the environment, which helps define the heron more completely. :-))
