29th September 2012: The River Stour dog-legs around the south pool. In the middle of the dog-leg is a small sandy beach, on the opposite bank, where I sometimes see a single heron dozing. Herons, being more alert and quicker than me, escape before I can get my camera auto focus to lock-on, resulting in blurred images.

This morning I saw the heron before it saw me, and I managed to get a bead before it few away.

  1. When I lived outside of Atlanta there was a heronry that was on Audubon property that I was asked to photograph. What a racket the young ones make when a parent returns with a gullet of fresh fish.

    Great capture! These are NOT easy creatures to get close to. Good work!
