Driving past a village pond, I noticed this Grey Heron sitting on a Duck House. He was either interested in the fish or waiting for an opportunity to predate the Mallard Ducklings or though I didn't see any. Unfortunately I couldn't get any closer without getting very wet. I hope you like it.

Many thanks for the C&C's, they are all appreciated.

Steve.

Both well worth having. I especially like V1, but only by a whisker! He looks a little - fed up, shall we say? Super capture.
