What a beautiful image...
Care MacADNski: Spring has sprung!
Jolie photo de ce héron.
Care MacADNski: Thank you.
A very nice capture Mary.
Care MacADNski: We have only a shy fellow this year.
Great catch, Mary! Love the softness to this image!
Quite a fun song isn't it!!
Care MacADNski: Thank you, Elizabeth. I love this band.
this is a nice shot, Mary. i like how the bird seems to be leaning forward as it wades inwards.
Care MacADNski: They bend over to provide shade. The fish swim toward shade.

I have always found them to be quite tame birds
Care MacADNski: Some are; some are definitely not, like the one around this year.
It can be hard to get a good image of them, Mary, because of how skittish they are, but you managed fabulously!
Care MacADNski: Some years they seem quite at ease, other years not so, like this year.

Herons are wonderful birds, Mary and I like this one walking the pond. I hope that he did "empty" the pond.... wink
Care MacADNski: They never empty the ponds. It is the sea ducks that tend to do that if they come here during winter.
A fine shot of a handsome bird
Care MacADNski: He was a delightful fellow.

Shallow water in this part.
Care MacADNski: My pond is very shallow now, a rel pity.
Urgently about his business!
Care MacADNski: Dinner time is now!
How lucky to have a Heron in the garden.
Care MacADNski: This year the one hanging around is very shy and flies away every time I go outside.

He is trawling, yes smile
Care MacADNski: Absolutely. He is providing shade for little fishes to swim into.
