064/365: Grey Heron

I decided to go to the nearby Dählhölzli Tierpark (the zoo in Bern) today over noon. With about 20 minutes each way, it took me a bit more than an hour to go there and back again. Splendid!

 

They have an area that doesn't cost to enter, where there's pelicans and grey herons and ducks, and otters, and the children's zoo with goats and donkeys and llamas. Today, I decided I'd be a bird photographer, so I stuck with the birds.

 

Luckily, one of them took off, and I had the camera set to focus tracking and all, so I shot a couple of series, with a total of 75 images only of this heron's flight - this one appears to have been the best of them :)

 

#058/115 ("Bare Branches") for the 115 pictures in 2015 challenge.
