That's such a magnificent Heron! I've never seen one of those before. The Black Swans are gorgeous. Love the red eye on that Teal.

Phil Slade said...

That's a new heron for me Carole. You caught the white around the face very well, otherwise it would indeed be very similar to Grey Heron.

Incredible bird photos Carole, and those black swans, how lucky you are to see them in this number. I am always in awe of them whenever I have come across one or two when on vacation. I also LOVE your header photo :)

That Heron is fantastic, and I've not seen that Teal before. Very nice pictures.
