Zoom| Grey heron | Water of Leith


My first proper shots of a grey heron. I had taken one okayish shot of a heron wandering wild around Edinburgh Zoo one time but I count this as my first proper heron shoot. What a gorgeous bird this is! Its intent focus, graceful movements and impressive wing span are captivating. An exciting encounter during what I expected to be a short and uneventful lunch break.
