Not a marvellous shot, but it is different, today's fly-by of a black-headed heron, flying at a very level angle. I've included a shot taken tonight of a black collared barbet, taken with flash as it wasquite dark. They nest in a hollow "log" attached to a tree outside our bedroom window

I agree, the heron position is unique, almost flat out. Really good job on the Barbet. Loads of color and texture in that one.

Very unique and well done shots. I really like the second one.

I love both of your shots Jake. The one of the heron is very unusual but the Barbet is my favorite. You have just got to get one of the whole bird so we can see what the rest of it looks like. If its as colorful as the head then thats one beautiful bird.

The barbet [Black-Collared] is not really an attractive bird, althought it's red head is amazing in the correct light, here are a few other shots taken a few weeks earlier,

one is of a semi juvenile with it's lunch

and another... The black-collared barbet sings an amzing duet with it's partner, which if you are not aware of the fact that it is a duet, you'd think it is a song by a single bird
