Welcome back, Jan - the time went quickly :dance: .

It is truely a great action shot of the Gre-back heron. :cam:

I know what you mean by it being quite - but this in a relative sense as to what LP could present.
Nevertheless, quite or not, still a great place to be.

Thank you for sharing and look forward to the other sightings. :thumbs_up:

You needed an umbrella or raincoat for this shot, Jan. :D

Love the action, water flying and seems he is enjoying himself or.... :hmz: did he know you are there, hence giving you a private show. :clap:

Thanks, Jan - great photo :thumbs_up:
