Years that pass away ...

"Be ye happy, if ye may,
In the years that pass away.
Ye shall pass and be forgot,
And your place shall know you not."

From "Vanity of Vanities"
~ Robert Fuller Murray, 1863-1894 ~

I was around two metres away; this heron is so confident around people. He kept an eye on me but was quite relaxed and posed beautifully.....

    A striking pose of a well photographed heron. But all of the photos are always different. Seen in the QEMD "Finch", thanks so sharing your beautiful shot with all of us.

    WOW, I've been trying to catch our local heron. But no joy; he/she seams to know when I'm pointing a camera walking up to it isn't a problem (3 meters). Show it a camera and its off!!!!!

    Thanks, Dave! This one was very tolerant but, sadly, since they started lots of paving work in the area, it has disappeared.
