Fly ... Heron ... Fly ...

|A grey heron captured at Ste Croix resort near Rhodes, France.|
I'm quite happy to get close enough to take this shot, even if unfortunately the greyish sky is not fantastic as a background. I noticed that wild herons are generally speaking quite shy, so often you will only see the fly away once you approach ;-)
However in public parks or other places where the birds are used to human presence, it's very much easier to approach them. After having taken a shot in Paris and this one in Rhodes, the challeng is now to capture under more difficult conditions ...

Great shot Mike, I have chased herons formany miles trying toget a decent picture of them. This one is so sharp, I think the grey sky actually brings out the colouring of the heron. Well done
