Ed - you certainly are taking great advantage of this wildlife viewing opportunity! Are these all taken with the "Bigma?"

Excellent series ! Should have a NSFW tag though

We have a different type of Blue Heron here (here being Shanghai, China) and whilst playing golf the other day I saw at least 100 of them 'flocking' .... I've never seen that behaviour in herons before.

Ed, these and your previous series of these herons are simply marvellous. Technically good, composition nice and telling a heartwarming story. I'm envious together with Daniel though.
