These latest of the birds are fantastic. Dianne

Thanks, dianne ! It really turned out to be a pretty amazing day for bird shots - Ospreys and Herons, and some hawks I haven't posted yet, along with the usual seagulls, sandpipers and cormorants. After sitting there watching it for so long, I'd been hoping for this one to fly off in profile, so it was a bit disappointing. But at least the west end of a heron flying east is different!

I think this is more interesting than a profile. The stern quarter.

Hi from NC, Jean

Thanks, guy and jean ! Never thought I'd be able to get so close to one of these that the lens was only at half zoom!
