Good action shot............Spotted a Heron on my shed roof the other day but the local crows chased it off...BUT it looks like it went with a belly full of MY Goldfish as we have not seen them since......AND I did not get a pic of it either.

Lovey shots Ann. I particularly like the movement of the water around the Heron.

Thats a long shot Ann if its the reeds I think at lavells. Just a little blurring on the head but probably down to the movement as it strikes so quickly.

Good shot, they are very quick and difficult to catch, (I know, one has been trying to raid our pond for two years and if I get a shot at him it won't be with a camera!)

A super capture, well done! I think I just prefer V2, it seems to "sit" better, if you know what I mean!
