Thats so graceful Jan. Really a beautiful shot.

I love the Grey Heron and we live on a small golf estate and have one that stands and fishes at the dam and I get such joy watching it from the kitchen window.

Then its probably a good idea for me not to play Image at your place Tessa , might be better for me to help Dave with the Image , well at least hand him a Image

I have some really special golf balls that love water and I would not want to get a Image like that Image

fantastic photographs PRWIN and Jan ImageImage
I hate it when the voices in my head go silent.......I never know what they are planning. :roll:

ImageThanks again for the great pics. The crisp, colorful captures are awesome. We have a lot of Blue Herons here in South Florida but the nest building Blue Heron of yours is such a great shot
