Cleared for take off..

By Fred263
Thanks for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image & your continued support & encouragement.

I hope you may like my image of the Heron as it readies for take off across the stream in search of food it had spotted. It was taken at Bushy Park, S.London with Lillian & friends two weeks ago. It must be the most photographed & loved Heron in Bushy Park & also one of the friendliest.Smile

Thanks for looking & try to keep cool on our hottest day of the year in the UK.
