A gorgeous heron! Love these birds. It's cool to see heron species from other parts of the world. They're different, yet obviously similar. Your last photo is fantastic with the water coming off its legs!

Great photos of the huron. I loved the ones where he's standing/sleeping on one leg.

Very cool shots- I like the one legged pose- almost like he is propping his head up.

What a magnificent bird this is Carole, and you have captured him beautifully. I especially love the motion in the last photograph. Perfect timing.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
xo.

You have some nice shot. I really like the look of the water in the last one. I like how he is "picking up" the water.

I like herons. I love when they slowly wade through the water trying to catch a fish. Beautiful shots Carole!
