Very nice shot

Perhaps it was hoping for some of your lunch. If that had been me I would have probably left the camera at home. Well taken - like the way you haven't altered the shot..

I'm used to seeing wildlife in the country side and have never been this close to a heron before.
Nice shot.

Richie.
