Thanks everyone for the kind words, it's just a pity that I didn't have some sunshine.

Hi Jan, I like the angle of the heron flying towards you with its large wide wings. Great photo once again. :cam: :thumbs_up:

BluTuna, if you have photographed them still this year, then they must have grown up since I saw them in Dec'12. Lovely series of action shots. Thank you for sharing. :clap:

My friend visited LP today and sent me some images via BB. I have noticed that the water levels are relatively high to what I am used to. :hmz:

Some more...please :popcorn:
