Well done heron. Not only saw the fish through all that weed but caught it perfectly, as did you in your own way. Smile

Wonderful set, Lillian. He's certainly enjoying his fish, and what a thick mass of duckweed he's standing in (maybe heronweed for him). Wink

Wonderful pictures all three. I have never seen a Heron stand so deep in the water before. Perhaps I should get out more?
Very good images all of them.

Well done Lillian. Super images. These certainly prove that there are more than just Deer at Bushy. That Heron must be about the most photographed heron in the country. !!GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
