Capture

So stalking all those herons about the place finally paid off...

When i came across this grey heron, he just assumed the startled straight-neck stance and refused to budge. But once i stayed still long enough, he suddenly started ignoring me completely, no matter how much i moved, and went back to his fishing. He caught two frogs, this is the second - after the first, i knew exactly where he was looking for them and catching the right moment was quite simple.

Brilliant. Stunning moment, stunning clarity. This is definitely one of those pictures I wish I'd taken - and a clear :+fav: :clap:
