today I was taking a nice close-up of some reeds in the sunlight when a heron, that was probably hiding in the reeds just flew out a few yards from me... making me understand why some people have two cameras!! it takes precious seconds to change from close-up setup to the fast moving bird... still, I am glad of pic! and, for the story... this poor heron kept going just a bit ahead of us... therefore being scared 4 more times as we walked around the lake! my favorite 'scare' was this little boy shouting "HERON!!!! look a HERON" until the heron fled, accompanied by a cute (and shouted) "bye Mr Heron"
