Heron 2

By Mollycat
Thank you for your comments on yesterdays picture, and especially to Cathy for her ua, a wonderful surprise. In answer to some of your questions regarding the pond. Yes it does have a net over it, as it full of koi and goldfish. However, the pond committee, have opened part of the net so the heron can pop in for breakfast now and then. The koi seem to hide under the net and weeds, the goldfish don't.

It's definitely worth sacrificing a few fish to get this visitor.
Not as cheap as a seed feeder for the smaller birds I grant you Smile

Another great shot Peter...a rather expensive method of feeding him, the last time I looked Koi were extremely expensive....

I think a slightly better pose than on yesterday's. I prefer the processing on this one too, with its slightly lower contrast.
He's been very obliging, I hope you got him to sign a model release form.
